Lous Martens about the book: "Seventeen years ago our grandson Jaap was born. That was the start of an animal book for Jaap. I used a dummy for the OASE journal of architecture and loosely pasted in pictures of animals that I had clipped from newspapers and magazines about art, literature and science. Plus stamps and photos from advertising brochures. Then Zeno was born and the same thing happened: an animal book for Zeno. Now I was working on two books at once. Then came Anna. Julian. Luca. At this point, there were five books-in-the-making on the table. And none of those five are finished yet. The children, as well as myself, enjoy seeing the small, ever-evolving changes. The additions. These books were never intended for the outside world where I had found all the pictures. Never intended to be published. Now they lie here, grouped into one big book, because others have convinced me it's what they deserve."

Sage Sohier grew up with four dogs, and currently lives with three. Animals have always been important in her life; so, when she started photographing people in the late 1970s, she often included their companion animals.
“There is more spontaneity, less self-consciousness, and more chaos when humans and other animals coexist. Love is unconditional, grief is uncomplicated though deeply felt, and life is richer, more vivid, more comical.”→more

Was eine Katze tut, wenn sie fotografiert wird, kann man sich vorstellen: sie stellt die Schnurrhaare auf, putzt sich und legt sich in Positur. Aber ein Kamel, das mit hocherhobenem Kopf über eine Menschenmenge hinweg dem Fotografen zuzuzwinkern scheint? Stefan Moses hat aus seinem Archiv die schönsten Bilder über das Verhältnis zwischen Mensch und Tier ausgewählt. Seine zarten, aber nie kitschigen Bilder fügen sich zusammen mit ausgewählten Tiergedichten der Weltliteratur zu einem einzigartigen Band für jeden Tierliebhaber.
