My fish is unwell, I just spent an hour trying to hand feed him, very very carefully. I just want him to know that I am there with him, I think he does, I hope he does. I wish animals and humans could talk. I suppose we just have to trust each other.
These photos are taken by Robin Shwartz. They are of her daughter Andrea, and their life with animals. They bring me comfort, in my fish sadness.
Here is a lovely excerpt from Robins website about her exhibition Animal Affinity:
"Each of us has a strong fantasy world. Amelia and I play out our eccentricities in worlds where she and animals not only co-exist, but also interact. Animals are not props in my photographs and they are not photo-shopped in. The world that my daughter and I explore is one where the line between human and animal overlaps or is blurred."
