From my interview in the @washingtonpost today and the featured image for Day 199 of @ayearofcaptivity: "This is perhaps my favorite image from the book because it says a lot about how I see our experiences with captive wildlife. They are the centerpiece, the raison d’etre for zoos and aquaria, and yet we make a mockery of them and of ourselves in the way that we interact, and fail to interact, with them. This seal appeared to live alone in this small pool."

Beyond excited that Captive (@ayearofcaptivity) is covered in the @washingtonpost this morning. Featuring an extended interview with me and a series of images from the book. Thank you so much, @karinbdc!

"The photos are unusual and at times arresting, featuring solitary animals juxtaposed against gawking crowds, suburbia and the barriers that keep them enclosed."

For all that you do for animals, thank you.

I photographed at a circus in France two weeks ago, for the animal advocacy group One Voice.
.
I hadn't attended one in a while. I was shocked, anew, with the degradation the animals suffer, and the pleasure the trainers take in the domination. And yet below the surface, their smiles look tired. It's like their mouths are smiling but not their eyes. They are tired of it, perhaps. These ridiculous acts. I wonder how much longer these sorts of archaic sideshows can last. The audience barely clapped during the animal performances, as the men slapped animals on the face with sticks and snapped the whip to make them move. The lions, overweight from a life immobile in small cages, "perform" grudgingly. They lean over and groom one another. They yawn. They growl when the trainer comes close. Often, they swipe at the trainer, hissing, angry, ears flat. The show of dominance is tired. Circuses: listen. The animal performances are tired. You look like fools in your sequins and your whips. Your finale ends with you facing the audience, your arms outstretched, in expectation of applause. They applauded politely. You look ridiculous, nodding and smiling and winking.

Just a few days into this year's Calgary Stampede, a horse named Cowboy broke his leg during a chuckwagon race and was euthanized a short time later. Horses frequently suffer injuries or die during this event, and animal welfare groups have been calling for its cancellation for decades.

Repost from @ayearofcaptivity: Day 185

Almost all primates live in social groups with established hierarchies. Many animals, especially mothers and daughters, form close bonds and stay together for their entire lives. Wild-caught animals are often captured as babies after their mothers are killed or forcibly separated from them.
