'Family Portraits'
I’ve always loved gorillas, ever since I was a child and first read about Dyane Fossey’s work with Mountain Gorillas.  The gorillas pictured here are 4 of the troupe of Western Lowland Gorillas living in the Bronx Zoo’s Congo Exhibit.  I’ve long wanted to shoot close-up portraits of these closest relatives to us, in order to try to catch the individual personality that I see in each of their eyes whenever I visit.  I’ve also always been fascinated with their hands, which seem so human.
