This exhibition of extraordinary images charts a 13-year relationship between a mother, daughter and the animals they're obsessed with

Robin Schwartz has photographed animals for most of her career; but it was only 13 years ago that she decided to photograph her then-3-year-old daughter Amelia with one of her primate subjects. The chemistry was instant: Amelia had a way with animals (now 17, she wants to work with primates as a career). This exhibition of photographs from across the 13 years documents the special bond between mother, daughter and the animals they've met along the way.
