“A Mothers Love” Gorilla Mom & Baby at The Phoenix Collection

We love this photo by Jordi Piqué of a mother gorilla and her baby. Jordi put in many hours trying to gain the trust of the gorilla mom before he could take this and other photographs of the gorillas at the Barcelona Zoo. Gorillas are shy, quiet animals and vigilantly protect their infants from the eyes of humans and their cameras. In this photograph, Jordi has managed to capture the tenderness that a mother gorilla feels for her infant—akin to that of a human mom—only after many patient hours of observation. This poignant photographic print is available at The Phoenix Collection here.
