Capturing a spirit of a place or a person is one of the joys of photography. I think a good example of this are the photos of Daniel Naudé, who’s work above is from a series called Animal Farm. The series was started during a road trip from Cape Town to Mozambique in 2008, where he began to document the feral dogs and cattle he would run into, contemplating the nature of mankind’s dominion over animals. It’s a deep and philosophical question, one that only becomes more complex as you look over Daniel’s photos, which are beyond perfection. There’s something really spiritual about his photos, like these could be gods in some Miyazaki film.
