Elliot Ross has devoted much of his career to making portraits of all creatures great and small. With great artistry, he spends hours meticulously removing the backgrounds and even enhancing individual hairs to accentuate the character of each animal. Through this we find lambs that appear to be smiling, bears that seem to have a wise understanding look, or an apparently anguished fish. There is a great sense of familiarity. Maybe we aren’t so different.
