Endangered – Animal portraits by Tim Flach

3 min read

Dignified, aesthetic and almost human – this is how the British photographer Tim Flach portrays the beauty and uniqueness of threatened species in his photo book ‘Endangered’. Each photo includes the animal’s own origin, story and function within the circle of life.

However, as graceful and majestic as these animals appear in the pictures, so uncertain is their fate; in the future, some of these precious species may disappear from our planet forever.
