Event: Look Twice - the animals of Bali as never seen before

When: Friday, 8th June
Time: 6.30-9.30pm
Where: Tompkins on Swan

Houndstooth Studio invites you to "Look Twice - the animals of Bali as never seen before" a one night only photographic exhibition & fundraiser.

The "Look Twice" exhibition showcases the animals of Bali as never seen before. These uplifting and poignantly beautiful image
s reveal their strength and spirit, and are a testament to the valuable work undertaken to save their lives. You will fall in love with every one.

Just like our animal comapnions at home, Bali animals deserve to be loved, cared for and nourished. Yet thousands of street dogs, cats and other domestic animals in Bali endure starvation, disease and neglect. Left unattended these animals suffer enormously. Tourists in Bali can be overwhelmed by the distressing sight of animals in pain and often don’t know how to help.

The Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) is dedicated to reducing the suffering of Bali's street dogs and other animals by running a 24 hour animal ambulance rescue service, a mobile sterilisation clinic for population control and rabies eradication, a fully staffed veterinary clinic and rescue centre in Ubud, an animal adoption program, and a continually expanding range of community education programs to improve the health and welfare of Bali animals…

…but it is increasingly difficult for BAWA to continue this amazing work without the desperately needed funds to support these operations. BAWA is funded entirely by individual donations, fundraising projects and the kind efforts of volunteers. They don't receive government support and urgently need our help!

In January 2012 Houndstooth flew to Bali and photographed more than 50 rescued street dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and other species including rabbits, piglets, ducks, lizards, turtles, snakes, roosters, ducks and monkeys in temporarily constructed studios around Ubud. This is the first time Bali street animals have been photographed in the clarity of a studio environment and the results are deeply moving.

Sixty exhibited images will be available for purchase in two sizes and fabulous silent auction items, generously donated by compassionate businesses, are up for grabs. Entry is free and bar facilities are available.
