Synopsis

Fifty great apes - chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos, our closest biological relatives - are featured in this series of portraits by James Mollison. Photographed over a span of four years in seven ape sanctuaries, in Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Germany and the USA, they are mainly orphans, victims of the illicit trade in 'bushmeat'. Djeke, Fizi, Gregoire, James, Koto and the others are all photographed as unique individuals while representing species whose survival is under threat. With case note biographies, and introduced with a powerful and moving essay by Jane Goodall, this book celebrates the great apes. The faces that look back at us also raise profound moral and scientific questions including what it means to define ourselves 'human'.

a Rorschach test for humanity 9. Januar 2005
Von Dawn Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I had vaguely heard of this book, then surprisingly received it as a gift. It's not what I expected, and is beyond what I could have imagined. Only a few of the protraits could be considered cute or endearing - most are penetrating, a few are frightening. In thumbing through the pages, there's no doubt I'm face to face with other soulful, conscious beings. This book is definitely the safest way to look a great ape in the eyes, and provides a far more intimate opportunity to gaze into and scrutinize the dimentions of a face than we generally have even with other human beings. Without a doubt, the best gift of this book was in watching my reactions rise to each portrait, delving into my own fears and attractions. Each face made me ponder what is human, what is alien, and what is the faint line between? I've been an ape fan for years, I need no convincing of our shared worth. But this is the first time I've recognized how foridable in soul, purpose, and spirit apes actually are. This book is an excellent reality check for anyone who wonders about their place under the sun.

A magnificent book 4. Oktober 2005
Von tola - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First of all, this is a wery unique book. There is only minimal amount of text, the main body of the book being designated for presenting photographed facial close-up portraits of great apes, fifty individuals in total. The visual outlook of the book is almost poetic.

But this book is not only a collection of photographs. In the end of the book there are short biographies for each of these individuals, the brief desctiptions giving each face a truley unique personality. And at least for me, the essence of this book is in fact in these - quite often sad - biographies.

Altough many of the photographed apes have had traumatic experiences as a result of human cruelty, in the end the warmth of these magnificent beings shines trough.

Personally I have not considered myself as an ape enthusiast, but after this book I truley am. I recommend it to all who appreciate the variety of life on this planet. This book is a beautiful homage to our close cousins.

A great work in primate portraiture 26. Februar 2006
Von Bukkene Bruse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Mollison's "James and Other Apes" consists of a series of large prints of close-cropped frontal face shots of a number of chimps, gorillas, orangs, and bonobos (in that order.) The lighting and photographic quality is excellent. The work constitutes a compelling examination of both the individuality each ape possesses and the clear and deep connections we still have with our distant cousins.

Jane Goodall wrote a nice introduction that compliments the books silent call for attention to the plight of these magnificent species and individuals. This is a great coffee table book for anyone interested in photography, portraiture or primates.

a piece of pur pleasure 13. Oktober 2005
Von Tracey J. Hopkirk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I live in Australia and read an article in our saturday paper the Sydney Morning Hearald.

The magazine had one of the images from James Mollison and Other Apes on the cover and I opened to the page immediately, I tore out the pages and stuck them onto my fridge enjoying them and the reactions they caused.

The article was published in about march 2005, said the book was due for publication in August. I must admit I was impatient to have my own copy of the book. I ordered it through a local bookshop noticing that available here was only the paperback. I had a glimpse of it at a Sydney shop it was only the size of a paperback, somehow I found Amazon and 2 weeks later the most beautiful book arrived, so big it didn't fit on my bookshelf. The only way to view these very special and important images. Thanks to James Mollison.

James & Other Apes 7. Juli 2007
Von Reader Rooz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Arrived well packed in mint condition -Initially read the introduction by Jane Goodhall then turned the pages with the eyes captivating as each Ape jumped out from it's own feature page. A great coffee table book. Although there is a summary for each Ape at the end of the book was looking for more information!
