Rational Animal


"In Perfect Harmony: Music Legends and their Animals" is a fund-raising 2010 calendar benefiting Rational Animals, sponsored by Morrison Hotel Gallery and its photographers. The organization does lots of proactive work to protect animals and reduce euthanasia, and is widely respected. Patti Smith is my favourite as Ms June, but it's hard to resist Danny Clinch's Moby in a van with his dog and Bob Whitaker's John Lennon snuggling a Siamese. Indeed, it's worth buying just to have Sting in a pair of shorty-shorts in your kitchen for the whole of July (thanks to Lynn Goldsmith). Making it an even better deal is the photographer's account that accompanies each image.
