THE EVIDENCE PROJECT & HIDDEN Animals in the Anthropocene


  Photographers Britta Jaschinski and Jo-Anne McArthur and author Keith Wilson collaborate on global campaigns, creating unique books and exhibitions, using the universal language of photography to explain how all things on the planet are interconnected and interdependent. Known for her unique style in photojournalism, Britta Jaschinski has been named one of the most influential photographers of our time. She has won numerous international awards and works with authorities, environmental organisations, charities and global institutions, documenting crimes against wildlife and nature. Her images are published in magazines, newspapers and books worldwide and exhibited in galleries, museums and photography events. When not on assignment, she will be a Speaker at photo festivals or conservation events with large, international audiences. Her investigative images and multimedia shows can be hard-hitting yet inspiring. Jo-Anne McArthur is an award-winning photographer, author, photo editor and sought-after speaker. Through her long-term body of work, We Animals, she has documented our complex relationship with animals around the globe. Since 1998, her work has taken her to over sixty countries. In 2019 she founded We Animals Media, which brings visibility to hidden animals through compelling photojournalism. She has also been a jury member for World Press Photo and Mont Photo.

Britta Jaschinski, Jo-Anne McArthur and Keith Wilson are the creators of highly acclaimed projects, campaigns and books. PHOTOGRAPHERS AGAINST WILDLIFE CRIME and HIDDEN - Animals in the Anthropocene, have received Gold Awards - Environment & Ecology and For Outstanding Books - Most Likely to Save the Planet. This new exhibition will feature a selection of images from HIDDEN - Animals in the Anthropocene, and their latest award winning campaign, THE EVIDENCE PROJECT - an unmatched collection of powerful images by leading photographers from countries across the globe. With their images, the Project's creators provide the evidence to call upon governments, lawmakers, businesses, opinion leaders and consumers to implement the urgent and necessary changes to ensure a safe and sustainable future for all humans and animals. Earth has been conquered. There are eight billion of us alive today and we can live almost anywhere, travel everywhere and consume everything within sight in our pursuit of the good life. But we cannot continue like this. This exhibition informs visitors what we each can do to bring positive change
