Panetta Photography

social documentary


Photographed in Thailand, India and Morocco, these images are part of a growing series directly related to this visual theme.  The title of this post pretty much sums up my idea for this series.

    This makes me sad. I haven’t looked into the back history so I don’t know if they are being helped or not. I want to believe they are being helped. But the images are heartbreaking. Especially the last one. Beautiful photography.

      Thanks Dezra. Unfortunately (for the most part) they are not being helped, at least not yet. The last two images are ‘show’ animals, so until people stop finding pleasure in this ridiculous public spectacle, they’ll keep them ‘working’ the way they do.

    I can’t imagine what is going on with these animals but your photos are great, they capture the moments.
