Photographer Brad Wilson's wild animal portraits are vivacious and intimate depictions of fascinating creatures.

The photo collection called 'Affinity' focuses on each individual animal. Every portrait is set against a blank black backdrop to emphasize the animal and its distinct features. For example, the tiger and lion shots are close-ups of the animals growling and show off their savage nature and prowess in contrast to the blacked out background. This photograph treatment also enhances each specimen's personality. The monkeys seem wise and their faces are displayed and offset the minimal showing of parts of their bodies.

Brad Wilson's wild animal portraits highlight the beauty of the animal kingdom and the photogenic nature of animals when set against a sparse backdrop.
