animalia

While art is always open to interpretation, it’s often the most apparent emotions that can be the most striking. Same goes for Mikel Uribetxeberria’s Animalia, a composite collection of fabulous photographs that creatively portrays wild animals in hollow, empty human settlements. Is the gorilla pondering how to escape extinction or the reindeer how to get on a first flight to the North Pole? Though calm and peaceful, none of the beautiful beasts seem to enjoy a day in the wild world of humans, but the stunning outcome is synonym with art. The art of domesticating the wild?
