James and Other Apes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

James and Other Apes free pdf 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 USA, 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 while representing species whose survival is under threat. With case note biographies, and introduced with a powerful and moving 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'.

About James Mollison

James Mollison was born in Kenya in 1973. Since 1998, he has lived in Venice, Italy, working with Benetton's creative laboratory, Fabrica. His photography for Benetton includes campaign work promoting the United Nations Year of the Volunteer in 2001, and the World Food Programme in 2002. James and Other Apes is his fourth book of photographs. Jane Goodall is the world's leading authority on chimpanzees. Born in Bournemouth, England, she began her lifelong studies of the chimps of Gombe in Tanzania in 1960 - defying scientific convention by giving them names instead of numbers in recognition of their distinct personalities. In 1977 she founded the Jane Goodall Institute and was appointed UN Messenger of Peace in 2002. She is the author of many books including the definitive study of ape behaviour The Chimpanzees of Gombe (1990).
