Horse (Montreal, Canada)


Topiary is the practice of trimming, pruning, and training trees and other plants into ornamental shapes. "Zoo" is an ongoing photographic series of topiary sculptures formed into the shape of animals. 
The paradox is twofold: a living sculpture represents a living being which is static but has to be nurtured, trimmed, and controlled. The photographs have been made over the last eight years in India, Japan, Canada, England, Turkey, and other places.
