“Jo-Anne McArthur has been documenting the plight of animals on all seven continents for over a decade. We Animals has become an internationally celebrated archive, and over one hundred animal organizations have benefited from her photography, many of which continue to work closely with Jo-Anne on stories, investigations, campaigns and humane education.” 

“We Animals is an ambitious project which documents, through photography, animals in the human environment. Humans are as much animal as the sentient beings we use for food, clothing, research, experimentation, work, entertainment, slavery and companionship. With this as its premise, We Animals aims to break down the barriers that humans have built which allow us to treat non-human animals as objects and not as beings with moral significance. The objective is to photograph our interactions with animals in such a way that the viewer finds new significance in these ordinary, often unnoticed situations of use, abuse and sharing of spaces.Stories and photographs for We Animals have been shot in over 40 countries and the photos have contributed to almost 100 worldwide campaigns to end the suffering of animals.”

“Her work has been featured in many books and publications such as National Geographic, Elle Canada, Canadian Geographic, DAYS Japan, Helsingin Sanomat, Photolife, PDN Online, the Huffington Post, Earth Island Journal, Point of View, Alternatives Journal and Canadian Dimension.”
