Statement

            Award-winning photographer, Michael Duva launches his website, an.imals.net.  While his work reveals at once his love and fascination for animals, these are not cute photographs of kittens. His haunting animal portraits compel the viewer with an un-flinching clarity, to view animals as our equals.
            Duva’s technique is simple:  he goes to the animal and waits. The shutter closes, and the image is captured, but what a miracle it is to see if only for a moment through the eyes of an eagle. 
            Whether in  a menagerie/aviary/animal sanctuary, a farm in Ireland, or out in the wild,  Duva’s vision is unified by his masterful technique and by his love of the animal spirit within all of us.
