15 Whimsical Photographs of Flamingos


While reading deeply every single nomination from the World Press Photo 2019, I came across one of the most fantastic photo essays I have ever seen. This project is called “Meet Bob“, an essay made by Jasper Doest, and it is entirely about Bob, a flamingo that lives among humans after being badly injured.

I wanted to make a small tribute to Bob, by gathering some fantastic images of flamingos – these amazing and whimsical birds are just so intriguing – so sit back and enjoy!
