Sean Dooley knows that "every preserved specimen represents a life lost," which is why he considers taking pictures of them at every fleeting possibility essential, as documented in his 'After Life' series.

In the photo series titled ‘After Life,’ the poignant photos show several endangered or extinct animals that are based in several natural history museums and gained access to private collections to take the pictures. The touching photographs, which include a type of bird named the Huia, which has an orange spot near its cheek but is no longer in existence, are a slightly sad reminder that the most majestic animals have never been seen in the wild or are no longer in existence.

While Dooley says his "curiosity" to document them was inspired by the need to share the beauty of these creatures with the public. Stats for Pre-Extinct Animal Photography Trending: Older & Chilly
