A chronicle of the lives of hidden animals and animal photojournalism, spanning many countries over the course of fifteen years.
Celebrating ten years since its publication, We Animals illustrates and investigates animals in the human environment: whether they’re being used for food, fashion, and entertainment, or research, or are being rescued to spend their remaining years in sanctuaries. Drawn from thousands of photos taken over fifteen years, award-winning animal photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur offers insight about our treatment of animals, makes animal industries visible and accountable, and widens our circle of compassion to include all sentient beings.
This new edition includes a foreword by Jo-Anne McArthur, new photos, and new written content. It replaces the previous edition (9781590565469) published in 2017.
