The photograph that started Anne Berry’s Menagerie series was Singe Noir, a photograph of a Black Monkey that Berry took while visiting the Ménagerie in Paris, “I was captivated by the atmosphere of this 18th Century zoo and also by the magnetism of the monkey’s silent but powerful communication”. Inspired by this experience, Anne travels to small, archaic zoos, where she spends hours observing the animals she photographs. The photographs in this series come mainly from zoos in France, Germany, Russia, and the Netherlands. To see more of Berry’s work click here.
