My Favourite Animal Families – Photographs by Steve Bloom
A baby elephant shelters under his mother from the rain. A panda in the snow looks into its mother’s eyes. This collection of enchanting pictures is from the children’s book, ‘My Favourite Animal Families’, with text by David Henry Wilson.
“I deliberately went for anthropomorphic photos,” said Steve Bloom. “If kids can see something of themselves in the animals, then they are more likely to be compassionate towards wildlife and grow up environmentally responsible. Humour is important in photography, so for this project I tried to take pictures which would bring a smile to people’s faces.”
