Publisher's Description

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
What do zookeepers feed a wild animal in captivity to keep it wild? How can this food be considered prey or sustenance when the animals are kept in a cultivated environment and no longer able, or necessitated, to hunt or forage? Johannes Schwartz explored this premise in Moscow’s city zoo, where he photographed slabs of fish, hunks of raw meat, heaps of vegetables and chunks of bread – foods commonly found in our diets, yet hardly suggestive of human consumption when presented in such a way. In printing the images, Schwartz experimented with dithering and an unorthodox use of colours, effectively using the risograph as a painting tool and exploiting the results.
