FOTO Dvije godine fotkao životinje koje bi uskoro mogle izumrijeti, rezultat slama srca

NAGRAĐIVANI britanski fotograf Tim Flach dvije godine proveo je u staništima ugroženih životinja te dokumentirao njihove krhke egzistencije.

Rezultat njegovog rada intiman je i rijedak pogled u živote ugroženih vrsta koji je ujedno i dobar podsjetnik na sve ono što bi se trebali bojati da ne izgubimo.

Od vrsta s kojima smo svi upoznati, poput polarnog medvjeda ili snježnog leoparda, do egzotičnih stvorenja kojih je svakim danom sve manje, Flach je predstavio širok spektar biološke raznolikosti.

Njegova izložba “Endarged”, ali i istoimena fotoknjiga, naišla je samo na pohvale.

Fotografije iz nje Flach povremeno objavljuje na Twitteru, gdje pratiteljima približava i jedinstvene izazove s kojima se svaka životinja suočava kako bi preživjela. Primjerice, sajga antilopa, koja je preživjela i ledeno doba, danas je kritično ugrožena.
