Jayanti Seiler

I distinctly remember seeing Jayanti Seiler’s series, Of One and the Other, featured on Lenscratch earlier this year and thinking it was one of the most striking, poignant, beautiful photographic projects I’d seen in a long time. The images of people in a variety of settings interacting with and often embracing animals, living and dead, nearly brought me to tears; they are such moving photos of moments that feel authentic and heartfelt, fraught with the complex emotions of the relationships humans share with animals today.
