What’s a human? We are, at our core, social mammals. We build relationships, communicate, reproduce, establish territories, and adapt to shrinking resources. In these ways, we’re no different than other social mammals. Chimpanzees, wolves, and gorillas are among the most charismatic of the mammals we know. We identify with them as species, groups, and even as named individuals. They’re also under threat. Join biologist-turned- photographer Ronan Donovan as he talks about his work in documenting these animals and what we, as fellow social mammals, can learn from them.

Photographer Stephen Wilkes built his career capturing iconic images meant to inspire and create change. The nostalgia of California’s Highway 1. The decay of Ellis Island. The ravages of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. In his most defining project, Day to Night, he photographs the changing of time from a fixed camera position over the course of a full day and seamlessly blends the results into a single photograph—capturing fleeting moments of humanity as light passes in front of his lens.
