Dreamcatchers, cowboy hats, flannel shirts and nostalgia are all present in Theo Gosselin’s vagabondish journey through forgotten and mystical America. In 2012, this young photographer took a road trip from Harlem to Venice beach and truly captured the essence of free spirits running wild.
“My favorite subjects are the uninhibited young people who are my friends, photos taken from the inside, in the privacy of our travels together, our adventures, our evolution in this strange world. Love, friendships, and our appropriation of nature and the urban world. Young, free and immortal.”

"Sentient animals have the capacity to experience pleasure and are motivated to seek it. You only have to watch how cows and lambs both seek and enjoy pleasure when they lie with their heads raised to the sun on a perfect English summer’s day. Just like humans."
— John Webster
photos by (click pic) michael poliza, dennis fast and matthias brieter of polar bears amongst the fireweed in churchill, manitoba. the area has the largest, and most southerly, concentration of the animals on the planet. in late summer and early fall the polar bears make their way to the hudson bay, waiting for it freeze over so they can hunt for seals on the ice. but every year, the ice is forming later and later, forcing the polar bears to go hungry for longer.

I’ve taken this photo while I was in the mountains with my uncle. I love cows, they’re so friendly and happy to be alive. In this moment I’m really sad, because I’ve just seen a program on Tv which showed a breeder (not far from where I live) who hit his cows cruelly and gave them horrible drugs in order to produce a large amount of milk. Animals have our same right to be in this world… so PLEASE STOP “USING” THEM AS INANIMATE THINGS FOR TESTS, FOOD, ENTERTAINMENT ecc. THANK YOU!
