Photographer Amy Lombard has the best stories. They’re by turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and shocking almost to the point of obscenity. Always, they’re told with humbleness and affection.

A mother takes her son while counting the sheep and goat on the corral in Zara.

In the mountains of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir, India, photographer Ronald Patrick found families adhering to an ancient and sacred way of life. In the brutally high altitudes, he found shepherds, some of them frail with age, commanding herds of sheep, goats, and perhaps most astonishingly, the beautiful, hulking yak.

Paradise

Photographers Deb Young and Francisco Diaz were both enamored with animals as children, Diaz with his dogs and Young with the cows and chickens raised by her family on the hilly New Zealand landscape.

In that sense, The Wandering Kind is both a personal return to the artists’ early years and a collective homecoming to mankind’s place of origin: the wilderness.

Photographer Richard Phibbs met Cosita at Humane Society of New York. She was homeless at the time, but the shelter was probably the safest place she’d ever been. She was discovered tied up to a tree somewhere in Mexico, where she had been abandoned and impregnated twice. She was neglected and sick when she was rescued, but a devoted team nursed back to health.

Anyone who has ever known a dog understands that a dog’s life is beautiful for its simplicity. They don’t ask much; all a dog needs to be content is food, shelter, and a loving home. Minimal Pup, an Instagram account devoted to cleanly composed canine portraits, is a celebration of the kind of zest and appreciation a dog has for the simplest of things.

You’ve heard of the Instagram trend “Tiny people in big places,” but Minimal Pup is all about “Tiny pups in big places.” Founders Jen and Steve happily accept submissions and post the standouts. The dogs featured on the feed are usually rather small when compared to the sweeping landscapes and interiors that surround them.

A Camargue foal is born with charcoal gray fur; as he grows, his coat is dappled until it fades entirely to white. The horse is an ancient breed, thought to have appeared 17 millennia ago, about 10,000 years before human civilization as we know it. Today, they live wild in the rugged marshlands of southern France. New York photographer Drew Doggett traveled more than 6,000 miles to meet them in person.

Offset Artist Kevin Faingnaert will never forget the day he met Simun Hanssen, a resident of Svinoy, one of the remotest of the Faroe Islands. Hanssen, a retired sailor, lived alongside only eleven other people on this enchanted island, spending his time searching for messages in bottles, washed ashore from faraway places. He had love letters, poems, drawings sent by strangers; some he had contacted, when the glass bottles included addresses from Norway, Canada, Scotland, or Iceland.

Fat Cats Star in Irresistible Photos

evie“Evie is a mild mannered cat who enjoys chasing shadows and eating the finest pate.”

Cats can be difficult to photograph. Pete Thorne learned that the hard way.

The first cat to sit in his portrait studio fled behind the washing machine and refused to come out; the second squeezed under his couch. From that point on, the photographer understood: he could photograph cats, but he had to do it on their own terms.
