Hidden: Animals in the Anthropocene

  • Originally aired Friday 29 January, 16.00-16.45

From the food industry and medical research to companionship and entertainment, most of us are connected to animals in profound ways, whether we realise it or not.

Multi-award-winning photographer and author Jo-Anne McArthur has researched and documented our relationship with animals for over 15 years. In this discussion, Jo-Anne encourages us to interrogate what value we attribute to animals and how we might rethink our relationship with them through a more considered, critical lens. 

Since 1998, her work has taken her to over sixty countries, and in the 2019 Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition she was highly commended in the photojournalism category with her provocative image, Wall of Shame.

Warning: some viewers may find the imagery shown in the event distressing.
