A Trunk and Other Tails

Book and Photography Exhibition by Dilla Djalil-Daniel curated by Irma Chantily


In the exhibition and the accompanying book, the photographer features four short stories about animals that are carefully arranged yet able to present a visual presence that clearly flows: rich with details of the object-subject composition along with lines and shadows that seem to play a melody – from one picture to the next. In completing her four stories in this book, Dilla has journeyed to Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal and South Africa. It is interesting to observe how Dilla, who was born and raised in a big city, dares to travel the world on her own, gathering her stories about animals. And wherever she goes, she finds the complexity in the relationship between humans and animals: the care and the abuse, feeding them and enslaving them, living together in the same food chain.
