Photography is a medium through which animals can be shown in a different light, with no discrimination between dogs, cats and farm animals.
They are all equal and hold the same right to a decent life. All are conscious beings: they are not consumer goods.
Every week, in the Spanish animal sanctuary El Hogar ProVegan, I have been photographing its inhabitants and at the same time, learning how to live.
“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality
