The Logic of Animals

Animal Logic presents photographer Richard Barnes's work in a book divided into four sections, with each section focusing on a different aspect of the relationship between the human and animal world.

The photographs which grace these pages show startling parallels between the frozen people who maintain museum exhibits and the mounted animals who spend years in these artificial habitats.

"Animal Logic investigates both the human desire to construct artificial worlds for "the wild" and the haunting and poignant worlds the real wild constructs."

There are essays strewn throughout Animal Logic. Joel Rosen of the New York Times, former Poet Laureate Mark Strand, and curator Susan Yelevich discuss nesting, museums, and the creative instinct, as well as the themes that unite Barnes's works.
