art and inspiration
A couple of years ago, one of our photographs nearly wound up hanging in Chicago’s Field Museum. Another photograph was included in a Polish publication aimed at educating children about various indigenous dwellings around the world. This year, another artist reached out to us to ask for permission to use one of our photographs for a project that represents the coolest use of our work to date.
The artist, Nicola Fester, works in relief printmaking, and has decided to craft a children’s alphabet featuring endangered animals from around the world. She came upon our photo of an indri, the largest extant lemur species, and has turned it into the letter I in her alphabet.
The series is still incomplete and lacks the color of the final product, but Nicola was kind enough to send us a few snapshots of her artwork in progress. Once completed, the children’s alphabet of endangered animals will be up on Nicola’s website, along with some of her other art projects.
