“My dream, thus mission in life is to travel the world and photograph beautiful, vibrant animals in all places and circumstances, free and confined.”
Julian Starks - 2018
I am a Los Angeles based Photographer, Filmmaker and Animal Activist writing on behalf of VISIONS OF THE WORLD Inc., my 501(c)(3) Non-Profit company. Our first project is “LIFE Behind Bars” Vol. 1, Fine Art Photography book. The book was titled after the photographic series that I started in order to honor the beauty of animals in captivity, and to support the many individuals and organizations that have dedicated themselves to caring and protecting these magnificent beasts.
Brilliant scientists, doctors, volunteers, activists and staff, working to save countless species from extinction.
I began my journey at Tippi Hedren’s SHAMBALA PRESERVE. I fell in love with the animals and the work that Tippi is doing there. This has truly been my inspiration! So much so, that Henson, Shambala’s Regal Male Lion, graces the front cover of this book. The book consist of 12 Zoos, Preserves and Sanctuaries, as well.
A percentage of all proceeds from the book; photos and all ancillary products will go to the sanctuaries and institutions featured within these pages.
