"A young man and a lion cub from Brian Staples's Traveling Safari. The photographer Jayanti Seiler captured the pair in Savannah, Georgia. For an ongoing project, Jayanti has been exploring the contradictions and complexities of the relationship between humans and animals. She photographs circus, shelter and taxidermied animals alongside the humans who take interest in them. Many of the people she meets say that they're dedicated to preservation and protection. But, Jayanti said, "we're taking animals out of their natural environments. They're helping the animals, technically. But when do you draw the line? It's complex, messy." See more of Jayanti's photos on the #lensblog by visiting the link in our profile." By nytimes on Instagram.
