Western Lowland gorilla mother and child

This is Layla, a 16 year old, lowland gorilla and her 6 month old baby. 
Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered so breeding programs like those we have here at the Bronx Zoo are quite important. This season, we are enjoying 4 new babies. They are ridiculously cute and each has their own very distinct personality. More powerful to me is watching the interaction between mother and child. So much nurturing. So much much love. So much like us.

We stared at each other for awhile. Like...a looong while. Was eerie. And beautiful. Then she closed her eyes. I took just one picture, watched her for a few seconds and for some reason, closed mine.
I stayed like that for a minute or two. Feeling connected. And all was right with the world.

This is a very beautiful experience, a divine one. We may not forget that those social animals have the same feelings as us and as you. It touches me really. Not that important, but I don't know: I was in the Zoo in Antwerp (a worst place to contact animals with the soul), I looked to a lion for about 5 minutes; he was looking at the people in front of him; I was standing more alone in the corner and everytime he turned his face to me and I did what my cat likes: that smiling and closing my eyes in a very relax way by looking to him and he did it to. I too had that divine experience. That monkey must have been in love with you, Alan!

I get this look a lot.
Actually...let's reframe that.
I GET this look. A lot.
I get looking at things sideways. Crossways. Upside down. I get the feeling of cautious trepidation. Of curiosity, inquisitiveness, furtiveness. Of walking by something and then stopping short to come back for a second (or third or fourth) look. And then doing the little walk around, head bobbing this way and that. Neck craning for an alternate view; wondering if this will further change my take on this world I enjoy so much to reveal something even more wondrous. I get it because, in my core, I am a passionate photographer. And it's what I/we do.

Story
Tagline
Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too.
Introduction

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.

I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.

I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.") Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.

One thing led to another and now I'm published, in private collections and winning awards.

Happiness.

So now I have two jobs that I absolutely love. 

Alan Shapiro; Executive-Level Creative Guy and Very Passionate Photographer.
