In the past five years Julia Lindemalm has continued the project and she has visited ten zoos in Europe and also photographed at Sea World in Florida, USA. Julia focusses on how humans keep wild animals in captivity and our relationship to wild animals.

 

Julia writes this in her intro text to the exhibition:

"Every year 700 million people visit a zoo worldwide. We stand in front of each enclosure for 46 seconds. By arranging nature according to our own desires, we distance ourselves from what we crave – the wild. Zoo World illuminates our unrequited love for animals and questions our self-imposed role as masters of the world."
