Monkeys are our closest biological relatives, and they make for fabulous photography subjects with their mischief and social nature. Here, I photograph two members of the family: Langurs and lion-tailed macaques. Below the photos, you will find more details of the monkey, and how climate change is affecting them.
Black & white pictures of macaques & langurs
Monkeys have a long history in human culture. We are, of course, inexorably linked by evolution: We share a lot of traits – biological and societal. The Monkey family is quite large and I have photographed two types of our primate cousins. Langurs are mostly gray, with a black face and ears. They are capable of incredible heights while jumping either vertically or horizontally. The Lion-tailed macaque is a monkey found in the hills of South India. It’s so named because of a black tuft at the end of its tail – similar to those of lions. Its most characteristic feature, of course, is its mane – another feature it shares with the King of the Jungle! It is territorial, social and aggressive – all fantastic ingredients for photography.

How climate change affects monkeys
Monkeys are primate animals. They mostly depend on leaves and fruits for sustenance. The CLIMATE CHANGE which leads to El Nino and La Nina events are affecting these primates more because it decides the availability of this sustenance. These events lead to flooding, severe drought, and storms. This leads to scarcity of food and water. This, in turn, is a pathway of new diseases that would affect the monkeys.
Even the food that is available has fewer fiber leaves, meaning the monkey does not get its needed strength. Female Monkeys end up malnourished and give birth to smaller offspring with less birth rate. These factors contribute to a decrease in population.
Conservation: How we help animals affected by climate change, and how you can help
I have always believed in giving back. When I began to realize how much damage has been done to the animals and the planet due to climate change, I knew I had to do something. The direction led me to conservation groups and organizations.
As a fashion photographer, I pay the models. In wildlife, I can not pay the animals, so to give back, I’ve developed relationships with conservation organizations such as the Wolf Conservation Center, Cana Foundation, and World Animal Protection.
A percentage of the sale of these monkey photo prints is donated to these organizations. So when you buy photography from Ejaz Khan Earth, not only do you have an inspiring photo of some of nature’s finest creatures on your walls, but you will also be helping them.
