Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fifty color photographs in Frank Noelker's Captive Beauty are not simple, uncomplicated shots of animals in zoo settings; there is an ambivalence in them that only gradually envelops the viewer. Their sad, stark beauty confronts viewers, challenging them to consider the nature, purpose, and effects of zoos. Captive Beauty includes a short epigraph by the photographer. The proceeds from this work will go to the Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education, and Conservation.
