I'm being asked to further describe some of the images from the We Animals book. About this, entitled "Next in Line for Slaughter": It’s pretty harsh, being an animal lover, and someone who cares so deeply for the individual suffering of those I’m photographing, to have to take these photos and not help them. To just witness with my camera. Makes me feel faint, sometimes. For me, this is one of my strongest images. Some of my images are aided by the backstory, and by descriptions, but everything I want to convey is here, wordlessly, through this wide angle lens. The individual. Their expression. The situation. The consequences. We understand.
