Artist's Description

I had the honour of working in Cameroon with rescued primates at the Limbe Wildlife Centre. Whilst in quarantine I cared for two mother chimpanzees who were nursing their tiny babies. They had been kept separate from the rest of the chimps to give them space and safety.

It was very moving when the mothers reached through and communicated with me. This mother is reaching out for a drink, which I fed her from a plastic bottle. She also liked drinking it from a blue plastic cup. If you have seen my picture, “Love”, then she is the wonderful mother who trusted me enough to touch her beautiful baby and to spend time with them whilst she nursed it.

All the primates at the Centre have been rescued from the illegal bushmeat and pet trade.

Taken with Nikon D50.
