Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Described as "captivating"by The New York Timesand "unforgettable"by TIME, James and Other Apeswas first published in 2004 in a large format to critical and popular acclaim and is now re-published in this new compact edition. It features fifty close-up portraits of gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans, and bonobos, shot in the manner of human passport photographs. The images are so strong and the featured apes-all named, with personal histories-are so personable that the viewer cannot fail to relate to them. Includes a moving introduction by the world's leading ape expert and campaigner, Dr. Jane Goodall.

Synopsis:

Fifty great apes--chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos, our closest biological relatives--are featured in this series of portraits by James Mollison. Photographed over a span of four years in seven ape sanctuaries (in Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Germany and the United States), they are mainly orphans, victims of the illicit trade in "bushmeat." Djeke, Fizi, Gregoire, James, Koto and the others are all photographed as unique individuals, in the manner of passport photographs, while representing species whose survival is under threat. Featuring case note biographies and introduced with a powerful essay by Jane Goodall, this book celebrates the great apes. The faces that look back at us also raise profound moral and scientific questions--including what it means to define ourselves "human."

Synopsis:

Compact edition of James Mollison's extraordinary book features startling portraits of the human-like faces of 50 great apes, chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos, our closest biological relatives photographed over four years in ape sanctuaries in Africa, Indonesia, Germany and the USA.
