Affinity is the natural liking for and understanding of something or someone, it’s a spontaneous sense of connection. And having been to Brad Wilson’s photography exhibition at Le Méridien Piccadilly I could not think of a more perfect name for the show.
The exhibition is a collection of photographs Brad has taken both in his studio and on location of wild animals. The photos are so intriguing and the animals have such personality that you are automatically drawn to them and I couldn’t help but wonder what they were thinking.
Brad has so far taken photos of between 65-70 animals and hopes to soon photograph the panda and gorilla. He works with an animal coordinator in LA who helps organise the animals to be brought to his studio and holds two photo shoots a year with each animal taking two to three hours to photograph.
