Photographer Set Out To Capture The Personalities Of Animals Who Adapt To Their Damaged Or Different Bodies Without Complaint

For her book “Perfect Imperfection”, the Australian pet photographer Alex Cearns set out to capture the personalities of animals who adapt to their damaged or different bodies without complaint.

“They push on, wanting to be included and involved in everything as much as they can”, the Perth-based photographer says. “These are the creatures who have lost a leg, been born without eyes, or are still showing the scars of former abuse”.

Part of the proceeds from sales of Perfect Imperfection go to the Australian Animal Cancer Foundation.
