Monkeys

The initiator of the series was the Year of the Monkey. 2016 (on the Chinese calendar) is a year of the Monkey, starting from February 8 (Chinese New Year), and ending on January 27, 2017 (Chinese New Year’s Eve).

Linked to this the series was created due to my respectful love for the monkeys and out of curiosity about their mysterious personalities. It’s a focus on concrete thoughts and feelings while viewing the pictures.

Emotions like our own are mirrored in the faces of the apes. We should trust more our hearts in this issue than follow the ineradicable prejudice emotions are reserved for humans. You really can believe what you see in their faces. They are happy, tender, roguishly, insulted, thoughtful, angry, helpless, shy, bashful, and sad and so on. In their eyes – if they grant us to take a deep look – you can find an odd mix of youth and age, lightheartedness and deep wisdom. What is it that they know and we not, and we have no chance to get an answer. Because the answer probably lies beyond our horizon.
