Ed Panar: Animals That Saw Me

Volume Two

Published by The Ice Plant
Text by Timothy Morton.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Ed Panar: Animals That Saw Me.'

The second volume in Ed Panar's popular and whimsical project photographing animals who stare back

Animals That Saw Me, Volume Two presents a new collection of photographs from the observational wanderings of Ed Panar, author of Animals That Saw Me, Volume One (2011, now out of print). This body of work, encompassing recent pictures and newly discovered gems from Panar’s vast back catalogue, records a series of brief, often strangely amusing moments in which nonhuman species (mammal, reptile, bird or insect) seem to behold the human photographer. Edited for the viewer’s maximum delight, the photos convey a whimsical concept with surprisingly complex ramifications under the surface. Why do we distinguish between “us” and “them,” and what exists in the space between these distinctions? What does it mean to make “eye contact” with another species? What does the presence of a camera add to this phenomenon? Channeling the same thoughtful humor, wonder and peculiar engagement with the world that made the first volume of Animals That Saw Me an instant hit, this second installment also includes an original essay by acclaimed speculative realist philosopher Timothy Morton.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Photo District News

Conor Risch

Ed Panar's photographs of animals he's seen while out exploring mostly urban and suburban areas with his camera are funny and delightful and weird. The more time we spend with his new book... the more the images have to say - about Panar and his photographic practice, and about how animals and people interact in the human-centered world we think we live in.

Musee Magazine

Erica McGrath

Why we have decided that animals are only capable of looking and not truly seeing is hard to say. The photographs in Ed Panar’s Animals That Saw Me seem to suggest otherwise.

American Photo

Jack Crager

From chicken to sheep, frogs to dogs, each of the creatures seems to ask: “You looking at me? Who are you?"

Ed Panar: Animals That Saw Me, Volume Two

Ed Panar: Animals That Saw Me, Volume TwoFeatured image is reproduced from Ed Panar: Animals That Saw Me, Volume Two one of our favorite Stocking Stuffer Gift Books of 2016. Cats, dogs, raccoons, frogs, groundhogs and other creatures make appearances, regarding the photographer, and us, as we regard them back. "If you have suffered from trauma, one of the most healing things that can happen to you is being seen," Timothy Morton writes. "Being seen doesn't have to mean that someone actually lays their eyes on you, although that certainly helps. Being seen means that your being is held by the other person without comment, without praise or blame or indifference, just with some kind of open care." continue to blog
