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

People usual enjoy looking at animals in zoos and similar places, without really looking at them , they just enjoy it without being critically and empathetic. This books places you in their place, being able to see them for real. The photos are accompanied with wisely chosen and informative texts.
Great work, couldn't recommend it more.
