Robert created a series named ‘Animal Soul’ where we get to see some lovely quirks and personalities of animals like cats, dogs, and horses. Other than focusing the camera on their funny and cute moments the photographer had focused on their character and personality.

As he shared with My Modern Met the idea behind this project had been to capture close images of animals that people are familiar with. He said that he wants people to look at animals in a manner that they usually don’t. And that he wants to show people a way of animals that they haven’t seen before.
