Humans and animals

Kerri MacDonald has a moving article in the NYTimes about humans and animals She's discussing the photographs Jayanti Seiler has taken of animals and of animals and people together. Some of the people are caretakers of animals at shelters. Others are taxidermists. And then we have children.
Among her most complicated subjects are the children who raise livestock — cows and pigs, among other things — that are sold at 4-H auctions (Slide 5). Ms. Seiler photographed them on auction night, after which the animals were sent to slaughter.

“It’s so fascinating to meet these kids, because they were extremely mature for their age,” she said. “They spoke very openly about their process, and that it was hard for them. There’s this sense of pride, though.”
