Among other projects, for the past fifteen years Colleen Plumb has been working on a series of photographs about animals and the myriad ways that we’ve integrated them into our lives. Her photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are held in public and private collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Milwaukee Art Museum, Southeast Museum of Photography, Fidelity Collection in Boston, and the Girls' Club Collection in Florida. Plumb’s work has been widely published. Her first monograph, Animals Are Outside Today (Radius Books, 2011), was named a 2011 Notable Book by PDN. She teaches in the Photography Department at Columbia College in Chicago.
