Since 2010 I have traveled to small zoos in Europe to visit and photograph primates. My portraits reveal the unique personality of each of these animals. Jane Goodall describes the photographs as “wonderful, very moving, should melt a few hearts.” This project culminated in a folio published by 21st Editions, an edition of 17, held in museum and library special collections, including The National Gallery of Art. I published Behind Glass, 2021 to make the images accessible to a wider audience. It is my goal to motivate people to feel compassion for primates and an obligation to protect them. Most of the primates I photograph qualify as endangered, and all of them are facing stress from loss of habitat and human activity. The plight of primates on earth is urgent; our indifference will condemn them to extinction, and we will follow. These photographs provide a voice for primates, and they are asking for help.
