Snow Monkeys of Japan - Life Magazine Cover


A classic photographic image from Life Magazine's archive collection featuring a Japanese Macaque (also known as Snow Monkey) on the cover in 1970. The prints are available to buy unframed or you can add a frame from our range of on-trend slim profile designs available in a choice of colours and materials.

The picture was taken in 1970 by Co Rentmeester and shows the animal sitting in the waters of a hot spring in the Shiga Mountains, Japan during a snowfall.
