Annie Marie Musselman captures the soul of her subject rather than their look. Animals are often arresting because they act cute or appear strange, but she has decided to go beyond the physicalities of different species to show their emotion al state as much as portraits of humans do. More than that, she "strive[s] to confront the destructive side of human impact on the survival of all wild creatures," as stated on her website.

Born in Seattle, Washington, Annie Marie Musselman concentrates on photographing animals in various sanctuaries around the world to bring awareness to their situation. By doing so, she shows their condition and how they are being helped. Nevertheless, her work also depicts the animal's fragility and vulnerability; the fact that their survival is at the whim of their human caregivers.
