James and Other Apes Small edition Hardback Signed by the photographer First edition small format hardbound with glossy illustrated boards James and Other Apes is a collection of 50 close-up portraits of gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans and bonobos. The images are so strong and the featured apes-all named, with personal histories-so human-like that the viewer calls into question the dividing-line between man and animal. Photographed in sanctuaries across Africa and Asia, the apes featured are mainly victims of the trade in bush meat that threatens to cause their extinction. The work of young British image-maker James Mollison, a photographer working for the Benetton artlab Fabrica outside Venice, these images are a moving and powerful argument for the protection of the great apes and endorsed by world-renowned scientist and best-selling author Jane Goodall in her powerful introduction to the book.

Sinopsis: James and Other Apes is a collection of 50 close-up portraits of gorillas, chimpanzees, orang-utans and bonobos. The images are so strong and the featured apes - all named, with personal histories - so human-like that the viewer is forced to question the dividing line between man and animal. Photographed in sanctuaries across Africa and Asia, the apes photographed here are mainly victims of the trade in bush meat that threatens their existence. This book also serves as a powerful and moving argument for the protection of these marvellous beasts.
