Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Sage Sohier photographed at refuges for exotic animals, wildlife rescues that rehabilitate and re-release animals to the wild, dog and cat rescues, and farm animal sanctuaries. She focused on showing the bond between people and animals: Many of the people pictured here have dedicated most of their adult lives to saving animals. As for the animals, their sweetness, resilience, zest for life, and willingness to forgive people - to coexist with them and often to flourish - is remarkable, and may be their only salvation. (S. Sohier) Sohier has had six books of her photographs published, and her work is in many important collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Sy Montgomery is the author of internationally acclaimed books, among them The Soul of an Octopus.
