Lennette Newell is a studio photographer with an uncanny ability to connect with animals. Her intimate portraits demonstrate that she is doing much more than putting an animal in front of a seamless backdrop. In other words, Newell’s photographs evoke the individual character of each respective animal as well as her relationship with them. Newell’s image of a spider monkey named Georgia, which is titled, Blue Eyes, is featured in the Center’s “Animalia” exhibition.

Describing her encounter with the monkey in her artist’s statement, Newell recalls:

Georgia and I connected immediately, we seemed to communicate via eye contact and body language … I sat on the floor to display my accessibility and, most importantly, to photograph when the time was right. She crawled into my lap and started grooming my hair, the ultimate gift from a primate. I will admit there was more socializing than photographing, though [both were] quite rewarding.
