I have been trying to take a photo of this fellow ever since. But the cat never showed up – until this day in March 2022.
This post contains a series of photos taken at the beautiful Duisburg Zoo. The photographs are presented without further information except for the title and the location. No explanations, no talking. Just enough silence to allow for silent conversations between you and the image. What story does it tell you? Which emotions does it convey? Does it mean something to you? Why? Feel free to ask each photo and listen to its answers.
This post is my submission to Cee Neuner’s Black&White Photo Challenge. Each week, photographers can submit photographs for a given theme and share it with friends and fellow photographers. This week’s topic is “Horns” – a topic that I just can’t ignore. I just have to share some of my animal portraits. So, prepare for a little zoo parade of rhinos, watusis, and some birds, too.
Today I’d like to share this new image of Tuan with you, the male orangutan in Hamburg’s zoo, the renowned Tierpark Hagenbeck. I have photographed Tuan several times before. In fact, he „modeled“ in some of my best orangutan portraits to date. A couple of weeks ago, he did it again. Attached with the image you will find at the end of this post, and there is a story I’d like to share with you today.
