Contemplation 24 X 16.jpg



Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

There is a balance to find when in the presence of a gorilla family – on the one hand I wanted to be in the present moment and just take it all in, and on the other hand I wanted to capture the moment in the lens of the camera. Between shaking from excitement, the lack of light and the difficulty to focus on an animal that’s obstructed by leaves, it was a worthwhile challenge. Here in contemplation, this male black back touched a sad and tender place in my heart and all of the photographic demands simplified.
