Jo-Anne McArthur is an award-winning Canadian photographer that has been documenting animal rights issues around the globe and on all seven continents for over ten years. Through her lens, brutal and complex worlds unfold about humans’ uses, abuses and sharing of spaces with animals. The goal of her work, pieced together in her documentary We Animals, is to photograph our interactions with animals in such a way that the viewer finds new significance in these often ordinary, overlooked relationships.

Through her compelling photography and writing, Jo-Anne breaks down the artificial barriers we have erected between humans and non-human animals. Her work helps expose and bring much-needed attention to inhumane conditions in monkey breeding and bear bile farms, rodeos, and research labs across the planet.
