Prominent wildlife photographer Mitsuaki Iwago has been documenting animals more than 40 years, with some of his work being featured on the cover of National Geographic magazine.

Through his work, the artist reveals how all of us on this planet — animal or human— are connected by familial love; Aug. 10-Sept. 1.
