More Info Works / ZOO


A woman photographs zoo cages. The animals stare back, following her with their eyes. The voyeur and the object change places. The woman plunges into deep water where a game of violent underwater rugby is taking place. She returns to the surface to breathe, but the stares and the camera’s viewfinder block her escape route. In desperation, she makes an extreme decision.
