Animal Photography Book Featured On Kickstarter

By Maryann Yin Comment

Robert Bahou hopes to raise over $31,000 on Kickstarter for an animal-themed coffee table book. It will feature more than 140 photographs of cats and dogs. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.

Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: ” I look for hints of truth in the photographs I make, and I have found that this is surprisingly accessible with animals. The reason for this is that I don’t believe animals understand what a camera is. As a result, they don’t behave the way we do when faced with a camera. They don’t adjust themselves, turn to their good sides, pull a prepared face, or hide anything. What’s left is a truly honest moment between them and the camera.”
