Lemurs are descendants of primitive primates that once ranged across Africa, Europe, and North America, but were later displaced by monkeys. Now more than a hundred kinds of lemurs survive only in Madagascar, where monkeys never occurred. Roaming with troops of ring-tailed lemurs, I fell under the spell of the rhythms of their daily lives, and watched this baby learn to see the world through its mother’s eyes. Images from my work in Madagascar are featured in my exhibition, “Into Africa,” which opens today at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and will be on display through October 22, 2017. If you are in the Cleveland area, we invite you to visit the show.
