I swear I saw a zebra that day

A zoo is a surreal if not absurd place. We build small worlds for the animals to pretend living in. We visit zoos hoping to see animals and be entertained by them. But it is obvious that the animals could not care less. They ignore us and everything about them reflects their unhappiness and captivity. So this time I entered a zoo with one idea in mind: I would make it my mission to take bad zoo photos. I would ignore the animals. Or rather, I would try to capture the very sense of ignorance into my images. This series is a first of many to come.
