Caged Series

Caged examines wild animals in habitats designed by man to mimic their natural environments. It is man’s encroachment on these environments that results in “CAGED”. Zoos and aquariums are changing from simply displaying animals to protecting the animals in the wild and where they live. As we take over the animal's natural environment, their cages become even more important, to protect the animals from man and keep their species alive. This series is a reflection of the wild animals in captivity. As humans do we understand the long term effects of these wild animals in manmade habitats and what is the best way to keep these animals caged?
