The Photo Ark

Posted by on January 2nd 2017

The Photo Ark is a collection of photographs of endangered species.  The pictures are taken in a studio, and the animals look much larger.

[Joel Sartore] has now photographed more than 6,000 species in 40 countries. The project has developed into The National Geographic Photo Ark, and its portraits have made it on to National Geographic Magazine covers and have been projected on to buildings – the UN Building and Empire State Building in New York and the Vatican in Rome.
