James Mollison's large format photographs of the human-like faces of 50 great apes are published alongside an introduction penned by Jane Goodall. Chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos, our closest biological relatives, are featured in this series of portraits shot over four years. From animal sanctuaries in Cameroon, Congo, Indonesia, Germany and USA Mollison represents species whose survival is threatenned. The individuality of each ape, warmly portrayed in each portrait, helps raise profound moral and scientific questions such as what it means to be human.
