Animals need a better world
While interpreting this year’s DPF theme, Aspire, photographer and designer and #DPF2015 volunteer Asmita Parelkar shares with us an image from her poignant series: Giraffe Behind The Door. The series is a photo project that documents animals in captivity. Giraffe Behind The Door is a journey through zoos and psychological spaces of the animals that occupy them.
Asmita hopes that one day a balance is achieved between human beings and animals. She hopes that we collectively aspire to conserve forests and wildlife. “If we don’t learn to co-exist with animals, we will only see them in captivity, behind glass walls or cages,” she concludes.
Based in Bombay, Asmita is an independent photographer and designer. Her work has often explored the relationship between humans and animals. Her series, Giraffe Behind The Door was published in the New York Times.
