Instagram Discovery #6 Sham Jolimie

Sham Jolimie is a photographer featured in this Fstoppers article.  Her haunting animal portraits are a thing of beauty.  Jolimie is an advocate for animal welfare and social justice and her portraits of animals, particularly wild animals, shine a light on their humanity (for lack of a better word) and ask us to see them differently.

Her shot of an owl in the rain has captured many hearts for its raw emotion.
“I shot this precious moment on a rainy monsoon day. I stood in ankle deep rainwater and shared a silent conversation with this shivering wet owl. We stared at each other for a long while. Its deep intelligent eyes and sad demeanour changed my perception of birds forever. They are more sentient and self-aware than I ever imagined. Owls have tiny facial muscles that allow them to show their feelings on their faces, just like humans.”

Jolimie’s Instagram is filled with shots like this and more.  Without doubt you’ll find creative inspiration and beautiful photography.
