Martin Stranka is always pushing the boundaries with the subject matter of his photos. We interviewed him back in 2013 about his beautiful alternative portrait images.

Recently, Martin has turned his hand to wild animals, in particular those who have been rescued, in order to create some extraordinary images that wouldn't usually be possible with wild animals. "I admire people who dedicate their time to rescuing stray animals, these are one of the best kinds of people!" Says Martin. "I have worked for 10 years as a freelance photographer and I loved meeting people who saved wild animals. It was always a magic moment to see their devotion to this issue.", he enthuses.

Martin's images help to re-iterate the natural bond wild animals and humans have, but they also bring to light how humans can pose a danger to them, with their urbanisation and agriculture that can unintentionally harm the animals. Summer harvest is a particularly dangerous time for animals that can accidentally wander into the path of farm equipment.

Martin says all the animals he captured recovered and in some cases were fit enough to return to the wild. 

Martin is currently crowdfunding a photobook celebrating 10 years in the industry as well as 100 exhibitions of his work all over the world. Take a look at his Indiegogo page for more information.
