Entry Description

While publications about animals are usually intended for hunters, wildlife photographers, environmentalists or animal owners, I believe animals represent a topic of interest beyond these specific contexts – I have been researching the subject passionately for the last three years. This series showcases a culturally-diverse selection of stories that describe unexpected man-animal interactions: visit of a “Fukuro café” in Tokyo – where clients spend time with different kinds of wild nocturnal birds of prey, a live Blue Swimmer Crab sold on a Hong Kong market, a snapshot of a documentary maker, a dry snake used in China to treat arthritis and an expensive song bird in its sculpted cage.
