Menagerie: Sharon Montrose’s Evocative Portraits of Animals
Earth’s creatures like you’ve never seen them before.
By Maria Popova
I’ve been a longtime admirer of photographer Sharon Montrose’s stunning animal portraits, so I’m thrilled for the release of Menagerie — a stunning collection of her most evocative images that will make you see at even the most familiar animals with new, awe-filled eyes.
From lambs to baby porcupines to giraffes, these tender, minimalist portraits exude a certain nakedness that makes the creatures in them appear at once more vulnerable and more relatable.
These beauties are also available as prints.
