a kind of you | heartbreaking portraits of indonesia's street performing monkeys

This series of photography may seemed to eerie for your liking, but somehow there are some human hearts which are even more scarier.

From the photographer: “A Kind of You is a documentary work of an uncanny asian tradition, where monkeys are trained and dressed to act humanlike in order to ask money from the bypassers. Modern city culture has turned the old tradition in to eerie and haunting act of cruel street theatre where animals become something else, never able to reach our expectations.”

By photographer Perttu Saksa.
