Holding Hands


Orangutans hold the hand of a staff member at the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Program. While there, I often saw the staff and apes communicate by body language. Orangutans are one of our closest relatives. They share 97% of our own DNA.

But they are also endangered: just over 6,000 Sumatran orangutans remain in the wild and fewer than 54,000 on Borneo. Chief among the causes is the unchecked burning of rain forests to clear land for palm oil plantations. These irresponsible decisions are pushing orangutans to the brink of extinction.

Available Sizes

We are currently offering photographs in two different formats:

- Classic: 40x30cm or 50x40cm (depending on image)
- Large: 80x60cm

    Each photographs' size has been decided in collaboration with the photographer to make sure the final piece is in the optimal dimension to suit the work.

    Printing Details

    All prints are produced on Baryta Hahnemühle 315g, on Epson Pigment Inkjet. All prints have been approved by the photographer. We work closely with each photographer to ensure every edition reflects their intentions.

    Each print will come with its own "story" printed on museum archive quality paper. 

    For more info about our printing process, please read about our partnership with the legendary photo lab Picto.

    What is the edition size?

    The edition is not limited based on quantity but based on time. Each sale will present a unique selection of photographs and formats that will only be available for the duration of the sale. The limited time is part of what make our prints special.
