      Animals Keep Photobombing Henry Gorse

      May 1, 2013

      Henry Gorse is a young photographer whose photos very often feature animals. I always attributed that to his spending most of his teenage summers on a farm in Cheshire, but then I asked him about it and it turns out it's either A) just sheer coincidence, or B) animals are actively photobombing his pictures.

      Here's how Henry explained his animal fixation:

      "I've noticed there are loads of animals in my pictures, but I never really understood it. I never set out to photograph them, it just happens. I sort of see past them being animals; they are metaphors, which I like to use to play on the fact that people are almost always much more empathetic towards animals than themselves. 

      "Or, I guess, in my world, it's the closest I will ever get to being a Pokemon trainer."
