Wildlife Art

``By Isabelle Ramirez, aged 15``

Go Wild! is a touring exhibition of wildlife photos and paintings by young artists. Its last stop has been in my city, and I went last week.

The pictures were produced by teenagers living in countries as far apart as Asia and Canada. There were often humans and animals working together in the pictures, and to me that was the message behind them. In one painting, for example, a girl was resting her head on an elephant.

Some wildlife experts say this doesn’t show animals as they really are in the wild, and I agree. But that didn’t stop the pictures being beautiful. One artist, for example, had filmed videos of animals through coloured glass and another had added music – they worked really well.

There were also action photos. One was of a bear that had climbed up a tree in a garden in Canada and refused to come down. Wildlife experts sent the bear to sleep with a special vet’s gun – and a brilliant young photographer saw a great opportunity. He took a photo showing the bear falling out of the tree, fast asleep, onto a rubber mat on the ground, as if it was jumping like a gymnast! The bear was later returned to the wild. And there were lots more amazing pictures like that!

Another young photographer took a photo while swimming with an elephant – although she almost got kicked as a result. I was glad I didn’t know that when I first saw the picture! It reminded me that the animals in the pictures were still wild animals, and shouldn’t be trusted. But this photographer clearly felt the photo was worth the danger.

1. What was Isabelle Ramirez trying to do in the text?

  1. say who had done the best pictures in the exhibition
  2. encourage young people to take up wildlife photography
  3. give her opinion of different work in the exhibition
  4. show that wildlife photography isn’t as dangerous as it looks

2. What does Isabelle think the artists are trying to show?

  1. that animals and people can live peacefully with each other
  2. that wild creatures living in nature are very beautiful
  3. that animals live very differently in different countries
  4. that films of wildlife are more attractive than photos or paintings

3. What does Isabelle say about the photo of the bear?

  1. It didn’t look very believable.
  2. It showed one photographer’s quick thinking.
  3. It made her worry about what happened to the bear.
  4. It was the most unusual photo in the exhibition.

4. When Isabelle saw a girl’s photo of an elephant, she

  1. thought it was worth the girl’s swim to get the photo.
  2. was sure that the girl had disturbed the elephant.
  3. felt it proved animals don’t make good subjects in photos.
  4. was pleased she only learned the story behind it later.

5. What might people visiting the exhibition in Isabelle’s city say about it?

  1. I’m sure some of these photos aren’t real – a girl couldn’t really stand so close to an elephant like that!
  2. These young people have been really lucky to travel so much – it’s a pity they didn’t take any photos in their own countries.
  3. I like the way some people have added special effects to their work – really clever!
  4. I’m glad it’s a touring exhibition – that means members of my family can see it when it gets to their city.
