Growing up, animal rights activist, photographer and lecturer Seb Alex identified as an animal lover. He would never knowingly do anything to harm an animal, and yet he consumed them as part of his diet. It wasn't until Seb's friend showed him graphic images of a slaughterhouse that he made the connection between his diet and the welfare of animals.
