Behind Glass is a collection of photographs made in monkey houses of small zoos throughout Europe. Anne Berry is recognized for her ability to create lyrical, intimate portraits of animals.

Her photographs depict a wide range of emotions and expressions and reveal an undeniable communication between herself and the primates she visits. These powerful and moving photographs make us reexamine our relationship with the animal kingdom.

Andrei (Moskovsky Zoopark, Moscow, Russia, 2010, Chacma Baboon, least concern)

Since 2010 Berry has traveled throughout Europe photographing primates in small zoos. Alone, patient and silent, in these monkey houses she establishes an intimate connection with her subjects. it is clear that they are posing for her and that there exists a human-primate bond. Using only natural light, Berry shoots through the glass with an antique lens. The reflections are part of the compositions, and the glass becomes a metaphor for the way we now experience nature from a distance.

Jimmy (London Zoo, London, England, 2018, White Cheeked Gibbon, critically endangered)

Berry’s goal is to motivate people to feel compassion for primates and an obligation to protect them. Most of the primates she photographs qualify as endangered, and all of them are facing stress from loss of habitat and human activity. The plight of primates on earth is urgent; our indifference will condemn them to extinction, and we will follow.

Berry’s work with primates has resulted in numerous international exhibitions and two limited edition artist books, Through Glass (North Light Press, 2014) and Primates (21st Editions, 2017), which is in the permanent collection of The National Gallery of Art Spe- cial Collections. Berry is producing a new book with Shock Design Books; expected re- lease is fall 2021. Behind Glass is a hard cover smyth sewn book with 112 pages and 50 duotone plates, crafted with exquisite archival materials.
