Chatting with Jo-Anne McArthur, photographer and author
22 June 2020
Animal advocacy comes in so many forms, all of them playing an important role in protecting animals. Tonight I’m chatting with Jo-Anne McArthur who is an award-winning photographer and author. Through her long-term body of work, We Animals, she has documented our complex relationship with animals around the globe. Jo-Anne was the subject of the critically acclaimed 2013 documentary The Ghosts in Our Machine, which followed her as she documented the plight of abused and exploited animals and advocated for their rights as sentient beings. Jo-Anne who lives in Canada also travelled to Australia to photograph wildlife during the recent bushfires. I’m also very excited to let you know about her forthcoming book which she co-edited with Keith Wilson called HIDDEN: Animals in the Anthropocene. It should be landing in Australia at the end of the year.
