For the past fourteen 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. Radius Books published her first monograph, Animals Are Outside Today (2011). Her work is held in numerous public and private collections, and has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with recent solo exhibits at the Union League Club of Chicago, Ryerson Woods in Deerfield, Illinois, Jen Bekman Gallery in New York, Dina Mitrani Gallery in Miami, and the Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago.
Plumb's work has been widely published and was recently featured in Photo District News (PDN), TIME magazine's LightBox, The New York Times LENS blog, and on the BBC in Brazil. Plumb teaches in the Photography Department at Columbia College Chicago and lives in the Edgewater neighborhood in Chicago with her husband and two daughters.
