Taking a Walk Through An Imaginary Zoo

When Lithuanian artist Ceslovas Cesnakevicius recently visited a number of European cities including London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin and Amsterdam, he was impressed by the level of tolerance amongst citizens interacting in the streets.

"In particular, Amsterdam seemed to me to be the place with the least level of intimidation between people, based on how a person looks or where he comes from. I had this thought: a hairy beast walking by wouldn’t bother anybody too much here, as long as it minded it’s own business... and this is pretty where the idea for “The Zoo” series came," says Ceslovas.

Naturally, this series consists of compositions – most of the images in the series are made of two single shots, the street scene and the animal. Take a walk through Ceslovas' zoo below...
