We Animals Gallery
The photographs in this gallery were taken by, and are used with permission of, Jo-Anne McArthur, an award-winning photojournalist, author and educator (and ADP friend!), who has been documenting the plight of animals on all seven continents for over a decade.
These and many more images appear on the We Animals site, which documents, through Jo-Anne's extraordinary photography, animals in the human environment. As Jo-Anne elegantly explains it:
"Humans are as much animal as the sentient beings we use for food, clothing, research, experimentation, work, entertainment, slavery and companionship. With this as its premise, We Animals aims to break down the barriers that humans have built which allow us to treat non-human animals as objects and not as beings with moral significance. The objective is to photograph our interactions with animals in such a way that the viewer finds new significance in these ordinary, often unnoticed situations of use, abuse and sharing of spaces."
