A series of reflections on the topic of animal habitat within the metropolis. While we are in zoos, we usually do not pay attention to many details, in particular to the decorations built around animals. The camera allows you to document the moment at which animals in an artificially created space turn into museum exhibits, and the whole photograph looks like a painting. This project is a kind of conceptual artistic typology of the habitats of animals in captivity.
