This ape turned his head when hearing the shutter of my camera for the first time. The second photo which was taken in that moment is shown here. The location was the zoo of Krefeld (ger.: Zoo Krefeld), which is a nice little zoo.
The Lowland Gorilla has a sad look in his eyes. The photo is a lot like a portrait shot of a human. The wide open aperture results in a blurred background, which further strengthens the intensity of the silverback’s direct look at the viewer. The light earthy colors match the melancholic tone of this picture.
