This is a human-altered world. How have these alterations by humans affected other species? Yana Wernicke
explores how animals experience society through the imperfections created by man. Through her visual depictions, we are able to empathise with the creatures displayed in her latest photo book Companions
. Encountering pastures of cows and baby pigs, Wernicke explores the interactions between animals and humans. Through the black and white photographs of Companions
, (published by Loose Joints, available here
), we are whisked away to an interestingly desirable, yet weirdly nostalgic utopia created by Wernicke.
