PDN Photo of the Day

We Animals

Photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur “has investigated and documented the plight of animals in captivity around the world–a ‘war photographer’ in an unseen and often intentionally ignored war on animals we use for food, fashion, science, labor and for our entertainment. Jo-Anne’s first book, We Animals (Lantern Books, December 2013), includes more than 100 photographs shot over the last decade in 40 countries. Aside from her work being published and exhibited internationally, Jo-Anne makes her photos freely available to animal advocacy organizations. Her photos have been seen by millions of people around the world through nearly 100 highly visible public and media campaigns by organizations such as Igualdad Animal, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Toronto Pig Save, Animals Asia, Farm Sanctuary, and the Jane Goodall Institute. Jo-Anne’s life and work is currently on the big screen in the feature-length documentary The Ghosts in Our Machine by filmmaker Liz Marshall.” –Courtesy Jo-Anne McArthur

  1. As Director of Investigations of Igualdad Animal / Animal Equality and having worked closely with Jo-Anne in many occasions, I can only praise her work and dedication. Her photographs have been instrumental in raising the issues she captures. You should not only get this book but make sure you buy several copies for your friends because they’ll love it.
