Details

Wildlife Tourism is a $250 billion dollar per year industry. But these profits don’t come without costs. The animals we love to take selfies and interact with, ride, and stare at, have often been stolen from the wild, their families killed in the process. They then spend the rest of their lives behind bars at zoos and amusement parks or exploited for entertainment purposes.

Aaron Gekoski has spent the past four years travelling the world, documenting the Wildlife Tourism industry. From Thailand’s boxing orangutans and Indonesia’s travelling dolphin circuses to Petra’s working animals and Morocco’s tree-climbing goats, his imagery has appeared all over the global media.

In this seminar, he discusses our complex relationship with the Wildlife Tourism industry, whilst offering insights into some of his photographic investigations.
