"Photographs can light up darkness and expose ignorance," - Lewis Hine, documentary photographer.

Amy Jones is the photographer behind Moving Animals. Since 2018, she has worked on the ground across seven different countries to document the plight of animals used for food, entertainment, fashion, and experimentation. Her work has informed and strengthened the campaigns of multiple animal advocacy groups and has been featured in over 150 media outlets, including The Washington Post, CNN, and The Independent. She was awarded both Best Overall and Winner of the Animal Welfare category for her photo essay “Next in Line'' in the International Vegan Film Festival (IVFF), and she won the Earth.Org “Overall Best Environmental Photo” 2023 and the “Wildlife in Peril” 2023 category. A selection of her photographs was published in the seminal book, HIDDEN: Animals in the Anthropocene.

Amy’s work seeks to replace false narratives with images of what is really happening to animals behind closed doors, giving people a glimpse into the places that are kept hidden from us. She believes that bringing animals’ stories to the mainstream conversation can help encourage people to connect with them as individuals rather than commodities.Amy's work also advocates for stories of hope: from the efforts of individuals working on the ground to protect animals and the planet to the potential of solutions rooted in nature and science that have the capacity to create a more sustainable and compassionate world for everyone. Through her lens, she hopes to raise awareness and showcase the interconnectedness of humanity, animals, and the environment.
