Amelia And The Animals By Robin Schwartz

For her series titled ‘Amelia and the Animals’, photographer Robin Schwartz documented her daughter Amelia’s adventures among the animals. Since she was 3 years old, Amelia has been posing with animals both exotic and common in an extraordinary way.

Robin Schwartz’s photographs are insights into a world she lives in with her daughter Amelia as well as diverse animals. The pictures were taken over the last 13 years showing the young Amelia with exotic animals including tigers, chimpanzees, kangaroos, cats and dogs and myriad other animals. The first photograph shows Amelia at the age of three and a half and on the last one she’s a young woman. Mother and daughter share an affinity for animals, which allows them to live out their fantasies and explore their mannerism together. Robin’s project blurs the line between human and animal with the basic message that animals are part of our world and humans are part of theirs. Robin just released her series ‘Amelia and the Animals’ in a book, which you can purchase here.
