On pages 131-139 Icelandic artist and researcher Bryndis Snaebjörnsdottir in cooperation with English artist Mark Wilson, documents an attempt to communicate with wild seals at the north coast of Iceland. The seals seem to show curiosity towards humans, but still keep at a distance. They cannot be teased to enter into any closer form for dialogue. At the same time a local farmer bottle feeds a seal cub probably abandoned by its mother. The cub is to be released back into the wild. The work questions if the inter-species communication between humans and animals can be held with true respect for the animals themselves, or if the human perspective will always be in our way. This book was nominated to the 2013 Swedish price "photo-book of the year". The book is mostly written in Scandinavian languages but the Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson section is written in English. The theme is the image of animals and nature in the visual archive and in museums.
