What I love about my job is the variety of people, and sometimes animals, I get to meet and photograph. For Rebecca Eckler’s story on domesticated pigs, I photographed two families with two different circumstances. Julie Chen and her family have ‘Henry’, a micro-mini pig who, along with their dog Betty, is considered a pet. Young Henry moves fast, so half the time I was running flat out to keep up with him. (And the thing with animals of this size is you have to get down to their perspective, otherwise you’re always shooting their backs.) Susan Morris runs ‘Snooters’ an animal sanctuary an hour outside of Toronto. Morris has a number of rescued pigs that roam both her hobby farm and her house. The pigs from Snooters are older and it was difficult getting them to do anything other than lie on the floor and sleep, which I can understand because in human years these two would be positively geriatric.
