Captive Landscapes - Daniel Kukla

Daniel Kukla, the Brooklyn-based photographer, photographed the interiors of animal enclosure at 15 different zoos across the US and Europe. He says in his Artist Statement: “We, as humans, go to great lengths to satisfy our desire for a connection with the natural world, especially in our interactions with wild and exotic animals. Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals.” Inviting the viewer to question the role of constructed habitats, these images explore the motivations behind controlling the natural world.

The first time someone tried to steal my bag in the subway I panicked and I broke his arm with an umbrella and since then none of my friends will let me forget about this.
If you think this was a badass moment you need to remember I’m 5 ft and my bag was a Lucky Star bag and I was crying while hitting someone much bigger than me repeatedly with a frog-shaped umbrella. 

you are my hero
