Deadline: January 17
Exhibition: February 27 – March 23
Opening Reception: March 1
From beloved pets to exotic wildlife, animals hold a certain fascination for photographers. They serve us as faithful guardians, trusted steeds, and loyal family members. We invoke them to highlight human traits both good and bad, but also search for our humanity within them. Photographing both the tame and the wild, we seek kinship that cannot be communicated with words. Whether as taxidermies for study, pets for companionship, or out in the wild, for Creatures, the Kiernan Gallery seeks photographs that depict our complex relationship with the animal kingdom.
