SNOW MONKEYS

- SNOW MONKEYS - 

These Japanese macaques live farther North than any other nonhuman primate. The first time I visited these monkeys in Joshin'etsukogen National Park, on the island of Honshu, I was struck how like us they are. Their expressions and behaviors are easy to relate to. By capturing the traits and personalities of the individual macaques I hope to contribute to the conservation of this species and their habitat.  ̌
