15 portraits of the Japanese macaque. This exhibition shows 15 black & white portraits of the Japanese macaque. Each image reveals itself as a meditative contemplation of an action, suspended. “Photography allows us to perceive with greater acuity than the reality of the moment. It makes for contemplative analysis.” says Lambert. Representing Japanese macaques in black and white is an aesthetic choice transcending conventional animal representations often produced in colour.  The colourless images offer a sculptural and timeless reading.
