German photographer, Manuela Kulpa, released this beautiful series of artworks to portray how important the environment is to her and her work. The incredible images show animals, either from the zoo or wildlife parks, and depict them in all their haunting beauty. Surrounded by nothing but a black background, the animals are free from their cages, or enclosed surroundings, and shown as they would appear in the wild.
Manuela says, “my photos are currently the most effective means for me to make it clear how important the environment is – every, even the smallest contribution can ensure the survival of our fantastic fellow creatures and our environment.“
