Stephen Ellcock is a downwardly mobile, London-based writer, editor, serial underachiever, researcher and image wrangler for hire.

This is what he told us about his curated edition:

"My selection reflects what is, (personal relationships aside), my greatest and most abiding obsession, namely the glory,  strangeness and infinite variety of the natural world and the welfare of our fellow creatures. I hope that, in addition to capturing something of the beauty, exuberance , singularity and sadness of life on our home planet , they also provide a glimpse of the mystery and the mischief at the heart of things." 

As Milan Kundera said: "Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect, human kind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it." The Unbearable Lightness of Being
