Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
La obra We Animals contiene más de cien fotografías obtenidas a partir de las miles de imágenes que constituyen un archivo en el que se muestra a los animales en granjas, laboratorios, circos, acuarios y mercados, así como en santuarios y su hábitat natural. La fotorreportera, Jo-Anne McArthur, documenta cómo interactuamos con otros animales y plantea preguntas profundas sobre nuestra responsabilidad hacia su cuidado. Desde los pollos broiler de una nave, hasta un tigre de un templo budista. Desde un conejo en un matadero, hasta un gorila adormilado de camino hacia un nuevo santuario, y desde un pececillo en una pecera, hasta un escarabajo en un insectario. La mirada minuciosa y la visión compasiva de McArthur destapan la relación enrevesada, dolorosa y compleja con nuestros compañeros, los animales, a lo largo de este mundo.

Jo-Anne McArthur is one of my heroes for the work she does... and I don't use that word lightly. To take her obvious artistic skill and dedicate it to the brutal and thankless task of bearing witness to the suffering of non-human animals is truly a gift to all of us. But most of all it is a gift to these animals. The machine that fosters and protects our abuse of non-human animals is currently to massive and entrenched to stop, but we must continue to look upon it. And doing so is becoming an increasingly dangerous and difficult task. Without the bravery and heart of people like Jo-Anne, the oppressors would be operating entirely in secret.
Jo-Anne provides a crack in the wall, and honestly it is up to every one of us to shine as much light as we can through that crack. If you care about animals and about justice and compassion, you NEED TO HAVE THIS BOOK ON YOUR COFFEE TABLE. You need to be sure that no one sits in your home without at least the opportunity to have their eyes opened. Buy this book, buy several copies - give them as gifts - leave them around your home and office.
And remember -
"We must not refuse to see with our eyes what they must endure with their bodies."
~ Gretchen Wyler
Through the years I've seen tons of the animal rights videos and seen gory photos of the slaughterhouses and cosmetic testing industries; while I still find those images ethically wrong, at this point, they don't hit me on an emotional level anymore.
But these photographs have haunted me and torn me apart. The difference between McArthur's work and PETA's "Meet Your Meat" is that McArthur finds a way to bring the viewer into a connection with the creatures photographed. Animal rights videos show you the violence and gore, but McArthur teaches you what it is to be the animal experiencing that pain. We become the animals.
She shows us each industry that exploits animals and her explanations of each photo add another degree of deep personal exploration. McArthur shares a quote from a young boy: "I want to become a matador because I love bulls." Instead of taking time to explain that this is (obviously) messed up logic, she just gives us the quote and leaves us to consider what was said and how we feel about it. Moreover, this collection will move you to do something.
I've recently devoted myself to a vegan lifestyle and I can't say that this book hasn't had an influence in that. Thank you Jo-Anne McArthur.
"I am passing this book on to you because I trust you to pass it along to someone you likewise trust. I am not asking you to read all of it, some of it, any of it, or even to look at the pictures. I am asking only that you pass it on as stated above, without comment preferably, other that directing them to this note. Please, no written comments at all (this is not Facebook) so that it is kept clean and without distractions.
The idea, of course, is to give as many persons as possible the opportunity to peruse it until they are finished with it, whether that's five minutes, or two weeks. To keep it in circulatinon, please do not keep it longer than two weeks.
If you wish to, you may sign it with your city and state and the date, so future recipients can see where it has travelled. Here goes!
But, so far, I haven't been able to let go of it.
