Slaughterhouse Smith encourages you to send J.T. Yost photos of slaughterhouses.
Do you collect graphic images of slaughterhouses and farmed animal carcasses? If so, you could help illustrator J.T. Yost by digging out those photos from the box buried in your backyard and e-mailing them his way. Yost is creating a graphic novel adaptation of Gail Eisnitz’s book Slaughterhouse, which explores the realities of the American factory farming industry and the (un)surprisingly poor dispersion of correct and comprehensive information about industry practices to the public.
Yost is looking for photos of anything to do with slaughterhouses, including (but not limited to!) images of employees at work, animal being processed, and the interior and exterior of a slaughterhouse’s architecture. He’s also looking for models (fully clothed, he says). You can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. (And, hey, why not check out his funky pet portraits at primarilypetportraits.com?)
