Photographer Alex Arzt‘s work “Human-Animal” explores the complex relationship between man and animal. Traveling across America, Arzt photographed people, animals, objects and the places that belong to them to show how both environments collide. Her pictures illustrate how these animals occupy the home as permanent fixtures, much like a framed picture or personal trinket. “To me, the indefinable difference between humans and animals is the mystery of animal perception that humans are only able to access through imagination and theory. When we see another living creature, we can never truly know how they perceive us or their environment,” Arzt says.

Work from the “Human-Animal” series is currently on display at the Caroline Collective’s “Gift of Gift of” exhibition in Houston and the Candela Books + Gallery in Richmond, Virginia. Artz  is part of the 2012 Review Santa Fe 100.
