We are all flawless with our flaws and perfect with our imperfections.
That’s right. We are all the best version of ourselves and no one can tell us otherwise. We should always accept ourselves as we are and own what we have because no one can ever take that away.
The award-winning animal photographer Alex Cearns has recently done something based on a similar concept. He has made portraits of some ‘seemingly’ imperfect yet perfect dogs, and I have to admit they are absolutely mesmerising.
While talking to Bored Panda, here’s what Alex Cearns had to say about them:
“One of my most passionate aims as an animal photographer is to capture the adorable subtleties that make all creatures precious and unique. I love every animal I have the privilege of photographing, but those perceived as different hold a special place in my heart. These are the canines who have lost a leg, been born without eyes, or are still showing the scars of former abuse,” says Cearns. “Most animals with ‘afflictions’ don’t dwell on them. They adapt to their bodies without complaint and they survive with determination. They push on, always, wanting to be included and involved in everything as much as they can, and as much as an able-bodied pet does.”
“The tenacity of animals to overcome adversity never ceases to amaze me. They make the most out of life and from them I have learnt so much about always seeing the positive in every situation and never giving up.”
