One Planet: Photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur documents our relationship with animals

On this edition of  Your Call’s One Planet Series, award winning photographer Jo-Anne McArthur joins us to discuss her decade long We Animals project, which documents the plight of animals around the world.

She says her work aims to break down the barriers that allow us to treat non-human animals as objects and not as sentient beings. How are photos redefining our relationship with animals?
