"Look at old photographs of indigenous people from around the world; especiall people from remote regions. You will see suspicion in their eyes. They harbored suspicions about the photographer; the invader of their space, the invader of their privacy, the "soul snatcher". Althought the photographers did more than take superficial snapshots - they captured fear and suspicion - they rarely ever captured the elusive soul, and fared no better with animal subjects. Now, look at Peter Berman's photographs... Animals and people alike see Peter as a calm, welcome friend. They can tell he respects their privacy and space. They are comfortable. Their protective walls are stored. Their souls can safely come out for fresh air. He watches their show and saves it for us. No catching, no snatching. Simply a soul willingly shared. You can see it in their eyes".Kevin D. MurrayMurray Associates,
