Editorial Reviews

Review

Jo-Anne McArthur's photographs of haunted and traumatized animals imprisoned for the term of their natural lives for no better reason than that they have a curiosity value for us are infinitely depressing. Taken together, they constitute an indictment of the so-called zoological garden to which there is no conceivable reply. --J.M. Coetzee, author, The Lives of Animals

To experience Jo-Anne McArthur's photography is to absorb the revolutionary idea that the loneliness of a captive animal is our own loneliness that their confiscation from the natural way of being is our own confiscation from the same. And that perhaps the solution to their existential plight might be the beginning of a solution to our own. Breathtaking, mournful, vital. --Andrew Westoll, author, The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary

McArthur sums it all up. We can no longer keep animals like this. Haunting and sad, yet beautifully composed. A must-have book for all who care about animals. --Britta Jaschinski, photographer
