Britta Jaschinski

January 14, 2009

03-1I came across Jaschinski during my first year of Documentary Photography, when i too became interested in animal care and isolation when photographing at an animal Sanctuary in Wales. Her work Titled ‘Zoo’ is taken in many different Zoo’s in western society, her angle is a bleak one and her photographs highlight the isolation and human kinds effect on wildlife by enclosing them in artificial environments. Her work though, is haunting and its effect on me as a viewer often brings into question, the lack of understanding between man and animal as sentient beings, the divide of incomprehension. I wont go to much into my opinions but  work has has a great effect on my ideas and thoughts towards our primitive understanding of our neighbouring animal kingdom.
