In The Polar Bear in the Zoo, Martin Rowe studies a photograph by the Canadian photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur in the context of her series We Animals and the portraits of several other photographers of captive animals. Rowe looks at how we come to the window to stare at the creatures, and the ways we frame our ideas about them within the exposure and capture provided by the photograph and the zoo.
As part of his analysis, Rowe relates his own frames as an animal activist, his blind spots and effacements, and how the various tropes that are evoked in McArthur's photograph reflect our human tendency to honor the act of seeingâincluding our beliefs in the epiphanicâabove our other senses, and our willingness to confront what we see or turn away.
"The Polar Bear in the Zoo...is a deeply thoughtful and thought-provoking exploration of the relationship between human and non-human animals. . . . Rowe's keen eye and even keener mind help us see in these photographs much that is in plain sight, yet manages to elude our glance." âDaniel Redwood, musician, Songs for Animals, People, and the Earth
"Rowe boldly and elegantly presents difficult questions that human society prefers to avoid, and therefore questions that should be pressedâand persistentlyâin the animal rights movement's works." âJim Mason, author, An Unnatural Order
"Rowe reflects on the deeply troubled relationship between humans and animals. He encourages a dialogue with the reader, evoking questions that are disturbing, profound, and unable to be ignored." âRobin Lamont, author, If Thy Right Hand
"A long, lingering lectio about right relationship between human and animals.... This cry of the heart reads like a wisdom scripture." âMary Margaret Funk, author, Thoughts Matter
"[Rowe's] 'walk-a-mile-in-my-shoes' concept as a trapped zoo animal gives a memorable perspective when pondering questions about how and why we do what we humans do to other animals." âEllen Jaffe Jones, author, Eat Vegan on $4 a Day
When Harry Colebourn saw a baby bear for sale at the train station, he knew he could care for it. Harry was a veterinarian. But he was also a soldier in training for World War I.
Harry named the bear Winnie, short for Winnipeg, his company's home town, and he brought her along to the training camp in England. Winnie followed Harry everywhere and slept under his cot every night. Before long, she became the regiment's much-loved mascot.
But who could care for the bear when Harry had to go to the battleground in France? Harry found just the right place for Winnie while he was away -- the London Zoo. There a little boy named Christopher Robin came along and played with Winnie -- he could care for this bear too!
Sally Walker's heartwarming story, paired with Jonathan Voss's evocative illustrations, brings to life the story of the real bear who inspired Winnie the Pooh.
