Interview with Czechoslovakian Animal Liberation Activist and Photographer Lukas Vincour

From WeAnimalsMedia.org
July 2022

Animals came first and then photography. I went to protests, we visited animal farms, and there wasnít really anyone to document it. Thatís why I took a camera in my hand and recorded everything. Since then, investigating and documenting animals has made tremendous sense to me. The camera is my non-violent weapon to help liberate animals.
