Explore Zoo Animals, The Glass, and more!

Look into the eyes of any animal at the zoo and prepare to experience a complex sensation of happiness, excitement, compassion, guilt and sadness. But there's something especially gripping about locking eyes with a primate, whose features are so human-like their expressive emotions tug at the heartstrings like no other. Photographer Anne Berry explores this striking phenomenon in her photo series "Behind Glass."

Sensitive, Moving Portraits of Zoo Animals

"I stand and look longer than the typical zoo visitor. Also, I go to small zoos where I am the only human around at that time, and I am very close to the animals I photograph.  I do often have a silent connection, maybe because I allow it to happen. I feel like my photographs are a gift from (or through) the animals." — Photographer Anne Berry on her series "Behind the Glass"  http://anneberrystudio.com/
