Endangered animals are a far-away mystery, for most of us. Tim Flach, British photographer has spent the last 2 years braving their habitats and documenting their fragile existences. The resulting body of work, Endangered, provides us with an intimate and rare view into the beautiful lives of Earth’s most threatened creatures, and reminds us of everything we should be afraid to lose.
Flach presents a wide spectrum of biodiversity with Endangered, and sheds light on the unique challenges each animal faces in order to survive. Some have had their numbers cut down by habitat destruction. Others endure more gruesome ordeals, such as hunting, poaching, and being sold into the black market.
Flach has often stated that he aims to reveal the relationships that connect humans to our wilder counterparts. Scroll down to see the most stunning shots from the series.
