Creatures have always been magnetic for me, and I’ve always been fascinated with cats. If I wasn’t allergic to them, I’d probably have one. Their aloofness appeals to me. Some people it puts off. But for me, it means they’re still wild, whereas a dog is not.

In this instance, I had a picture in my head that related to my daughter, way back when she was a two-year-old. We took her to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo, and she sat on the edge of the mountain lion cage. It was the first big cat she had ever seen, and she was absolutely amazed.

For this image, I went to the zoo and to the tiger cage, and revisited that memory of a child’s love and fascination for nature. It took me back to when my daughter was two and further still, back to my own wonderment as a child.

Tigers caged in glass
Stare back in equal wonder
Whose gaze is captive?
