Jennifere Thompson is a portrait photographer who lives near Brisbane, Australia.
ICU Too is an ongoing portrait series of "wild animals."
Since 2015, Jennifere has travelled around the world photographing animals living in their natural environment as well as inside man made enclosures and rehabilitation centres.
"I photograph their faces close up, so that humans might imprint an emotion to memory. Recognise the parallel between themselves and the animal. Think about our environment and the impact it has on our endangered species."
Jennifere Thompson believes in giving back to the animals by sharing her encounters through her images.
