Faces Of The Wild
Most people, especially children, love animals and dream to see them as close as possible. That’s why people created the zoo – a place that everything is perceived as entertainment, where you can lead the children through and teach them something new. However, few people realize that for animals – it’s a prison.
Why not put people in cages that animals could also closely take a look at them? Not humane they say. The recent tragedy in Tbilisi, where because of the flooding, killed almost all the zoo animals, shows once again that they do not belong there.
Why don’t we put people in cages that animals could also closely looking at us? – said the artist. The recent tragedy in Tbilisi, where, because of the flooding were killed almost all the zoo animals, shows again that they don’t have to live like this.
This question has long been worried the artist and photographer Devin Mitchell, who created a unique body art. What is the meaning of his work? It’s very simple: in the hide of the animal hides a soul that is created to live in freedom, not in a cage.
I believe in zoology, and the study of ethology. However, I also believe that large majestic animals should be kept in free range, land reserve environments, where there are no fences for dozens of miles. After all, this country owns so much land and I just wondered how I can spark a conversation about it.
