Photographs by Anne Berry
Behind Glass is a collection of poignant photographs made in monkey houses in small zoos throughout Europe, thoughtfully constructed from exquisite archival materials. Anne Berry is recognized for her ability to create lyrical, intimate portraits of animals, and her photographs demonstrate a perception for capturing the animals’ emotional states and intense facial expressions. They reveal an undeniable communication between herself and the primates she visits and her adept ability to capture this connection. Berry’s powerful and moving photographs gently confront the viewer to facilitate a reexamination of the human, and often personal, relationship with the animal kingdom.It is crafted with high-end stochastic screen printing on archival matte art paper with varnish on the photographs.
Berry’s photographs tug at our heart strings and elicit our empathy to all of those animals and individuals who are caged and incarcerated. This book constitutes a call to action for this planet and everything that lives on it, mankind, animals, insects and plants. – Doug Stockdale PhotoBook Journal
