This month the Wall Street Journal highlights a photography exhibit in New York City which features animals as fine art.

As reported by Ellen Gamerman, "The animals are watching. Across the photography show, an annual fair staged by the dealer group AIPAD, animal portraits are among this year’s standouts. The images on display at New York’s Park Avenue Armory through Sunday feature all manner of non-human subjects, putting a disorienting twist on the familiar gaze of pets, offering surreal glimpses of other-worldly creatures and unleashing the hungry stares of beasts."

As a landscape photographer, I was particularly drawn to this last image of a rhinoceros. The animal has unintentionally camouflaged itself, making it appear wholly at one with its environment.
