The great lion casts his eyes downward, furrows his brow. A rooster prances, his pink flesh gleaming under heavy lights. A chimpanzee turns his head. In his unbelievably telling series “More Than Human,” the photographer Tim Flach challenges the way we think about our fellow creatures. 

More in the vein of intimate portraiture than documentary or wildlife photography, Tim Flach’s expert lens frames animals within dignified and thoughtful spaces too seldom captured. From the owl to the insect, each subject reveals depths of feeling the best of us rarely succeed in expressing. Each creature seems to surrender to emotionality, inviting viewers into quietly tender moments of kisses given, eyes closed, or hands held.
