Purposefully graphic and controversial – from utopian visions of a vegan world to brutal mutilations of non-human animals and dystopian portrayals of overconsumption in industrial agriculture – Tommy Kane and his fellow artists are unflinching in their advocation of veganism and animal rights.

"I make photographs of farm animals using methods designed to intoxicate the viewer and overwhelm them with sympathy. They are designed to make us question our own impulse to eagerly accept the reality that we desire, even while knowing it cannot be true."

- Rob Maccinnis in Vegan Art
