“Hold Me Closer” is all about caring. Naomi wanted to connect the viewer to these precious animals through the most basic raw emotion – love. By displaying a mother’s intense love for her baby, Naomi wanted to tug on the heartstrings and highlight the orangutan’s vulnerability and plight. Naomi commented: ‘No one will protect what they don’t care about.’
