Theme 3: Companion Species

In this theme, the students were required to submit a photo essay based on Donna Haraway’s concept of ‘companion species’. They were tasked to identify four stories / narratives from friends or family members that highlight pet-human relations. The stories were to focus on accounts of kinship, friendship, affinities and emotional connectedness to domestic pets.
