Powerfully Minimalist Portraits of Wild Animals by Troy Moth

Photographer Troy Moth spent the first few years of his life living in a tent in a remote tree-planting camp in Western Canada, instilling in him a deep love of nature. His upbringing surrounded by untamed flora and fauna is reflected in Animal Works, a series of striking photos depicting animals roaming freely in the wilderness.

Moth's images are impactful in their stark, minimalist compositions. Whether the subject is a tiny figure amidst windswept grasses, or an intimidating force emerging from the darkness, the animal's powerful presence demands attention from the viewer. Bears, horses, wolves, and fierce birds of prey turn their piercing gazes on the camera, the intelligent gleam in their eyes fascinatingly feral and humanlike at the same time.
