The series come from the fear inside of me. I’m really scared of snakes due to childhood experience. But I don’t think it is our call to say which species should live and which shouldn’t. Killing elephants for ivory, or slaughtering ostrich for leather, are against the Nature. This planet has lost a lot just because of our needs. That’s why I made this series, to help me face my fear, and coexist with whatever’s inside, and let animals live by what they are, not what we want them to be.
