Synopsis

Humans and Other Animals by Adam Broomberg

Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin are photographic artists, best known for the way they merge photojournalism and visual art, producing provocative, ambiguous interpretations of history and current events. Now, in their first book for children, they turn this way of looking at the world into a witty and playful photographic ABC. Humans and Other Animals is enhanced by British Sign Language and produced in collaboration with students and staff at London's Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children. Making unexpected connections between familiar words and their meanings through black-and-white photography, text and brightly coloured graphics, the artists play with the complex relationship between image and text. Broomberg and Chanarin's imagery, coupled with photographs from the Getty Archive in London, makes for an alternative reading experience that teaches young readers to 'listen with their eyes'.
