This is a book of snapshots of domestic and exotic animals, mostly taken at night by automatically triggered 'camera traps'. Artist Alex Hanimann has succeeded in reaching a wider public with these automatic photographs, originally intended only for the use of a small circle of zoologists. With his extensive collection of images, he orders the ways in which animals are viewed for scientific and preservation purposes. But unlike animal preservationists, the artist is also interested in atmospheric aspects of these green gray worlds, as well as the moments when the camera fails, capturing only a fleeting glimpse of the fleeing subject’s hind legs. Flawed fragments are just as exciting as successful wholes.
