Call it what you want but I love zoos. And with how many different cities I get to visit I figure…why not? It’s easy to relate to these animals in a way. There they are displayed for our entertainment/viewing pleasure while we remain unaware of the lives these animals lived prior to captivity, or outside the 9 hours per day the zoo is open. Sound familiar? Beyond any of the symbolism I’m trying to convey…it’s hard to ignore the raw beauty that exists here. I’m just trying to capture it.
