I've never looked properly to a gorilla. I've always known that these are some powerful, gorgeous primates, but I would never guess that they are such expressive creatures. Taking a closer look, they seem to be so human. And maybe, in their nature, they are much more "civilized" than most us.

So I've curated a small, but effective set of images taken by super talented photographers showing these amazing beings. Look at their eyes... at the expressions on their faces. So beautiful! These are fantastic pictures. So, for more of these, please visit each photographer simply by clicking each image. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Cheers! ;)
