Charley Williams is a photographer who likes to shoot the world as it comes; she believes the thrill lies in catching the right moment or angle, rather than creating something completely from scratch. She uses her work to articulate responses to wider issues surrounding her subjects. 'Ark' is a project exploring the inevitable human influence on animals living within a zoo environment. Many zoos offer expensive 'wildlife' photography experiences, which invite attendees to zoom in close, blur the background and buy into the false reality of the wild animal. Her work takes the viewer beyond the frame of the average tourist photo, to purposefully include the unwanted human influence.
