"Animal portraits are a reflection of our own wild souls."
Untamed beauty captured by the sharpest lenses: Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque has won numerous awards for his animal portraits. The photo-artist from Lima has walked through (wild)life with a camera at his side since the age of ten. Over the course of his studies at the Paris-Sorbonne University, he specialized in portrait, animal and landscape photography. These areas of fascination are still very much present in his work today. The subjects in his wildlife series are so magnificently captured it almost appears as though his animal-models had posed for a shoot in a perfectly planned out and lit studio. Jarque was nominated for the Sony World Photography Award 2016.
