The Rough Skin of the Elephant (La piel ruda del elefante, 2013-2015) is the title of a series by the Catalan photographer Pàtric Marín which pictures surprising scenarios of animals escaped from the zoo and trapped inside various spaces in a city – a parking lot and other charmless locations. The photographs caught my attention immediately, apart from being thoroughly well executed, moving, and tragic, they are in perfect harmony with zoowithoutanimals. They are wonderful, see for yourself:
Raül and Emma
Wake up, Glòria!
Jordi, learn to fly please!
Ismael, reflection is for idiots
Rita hangs by a thread
Xavier, go out of here!
Artur’s sad job
The end or the beginning
Josep, what do you want?
