Abstract / Summary

A visual exploration of the history and future of animal photography, WHY WE PHOTOGRAPH ANIMALS encourages us to think and rethink the way we have looked at - and used - animals and to consider our future relationships with nonhuman species.

Multistranded, this book features the work of more than one hundred photographers supported by thematic essays that provide historical context; interviews with and contributions by leading contemporary photographers that explore their influences, methods, and motivations; and visual collections that present the very best animal photography from its inception to the present day.

WHY WE PHOTOGRAPH ANIMALS is deliberately not a conventional history of wildlife photography. It’s an exploration of the animal in photography. It speaks to our ongoing desire to look at animals; to understand, misunderstand, and appreciate them; to use and abuse them; to neglect or come to value and protect them.

'A compelling visual anthology of one of photography’s most popular subjects, reframing our understanding of why we photograph animals and why photographing them matters to us and the planet.'

From Publisher: 'A book that will engage those with an interest in wildlife photography and the natural world, but also those with a concern for the future of the planet. Huw Lewis-Jones’s expert authorship and curation celebrates extraordinary images by brilliant photographers, but also allows us to understand why people have photographed animals at different points in history and what it means in the present.'

On UK publication, the work was featured on high-profile websites and major newspapers, including The Sunday Times, Guardian, Daily Mail, with feature articles and reviews in leading industry and popular journals, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Camera, the RPS Journal, Amateur Photographer, among others. Public events included Cheltenham Science Festival. Coverage on BBC website and CBBC Newsround. An edition was released in North America in April 2024. Multiple foreign editions are currently in progress, with priority editions planned in Germany and China. More info and revised statement of impact to follow in the run up to REF'29.
