Photographer brad Wilson is coming to a close. Very close. No wonder that his new project is called "Proximity". It's a series of photos of wild animals taken as close as possible. Wilson photographing animals on a black background. The result is great shots of different animals to "persons" which can be seen expressive features, forcing us to watch again and again.
Although many of his "models" - wild animals, he photographs them not in their natural habitat. Photo: Puma.
Animals are transported to his Studio. In the photo: Zebra.
These animals are accustomed to humans, and Wilson knows they won't attack him. That is why he can photograph them from close range. On the photo: the Cheetah.
Of course, some steps need to be taken. Photo: a chimpanzee.
In addition, animals are accompanied by the Rangers, and during the shooting they are given their favorite treats as a reward. On the photo: the elephant.
