The Perttu Saksa series of photos featuring street-performing monkeys. Entitled 'A Kind of You,' it is both a haunting and a sobering experience that will stay with you for a long time.
The street-performing monkeys featured in 'A Kind of You' are from Jakarta, Indonesia where you will find them on the streets performing shows by wearing plastic baby doll heads, holding parasols and riding bikes. These monkeys are subjected to traumatic conditions: their teeth are pulled so they can't bite, tortured to remain obedient and hung from chains in order to be trained to walk on their hind legs like a human.
Fortunately, it seems like these horrible acts are on their way out as the governor of Jakarta has ordered that all street-performing monkeys be gone by next year.
