This black and white zoo animals photo series shows the audience desolate creatures in the midst of winter looking lonely and in need of a friend -- or an audience -- to keep them company.

Captured by Spanish photographer Toni Amengual, 'Necrofilia I' is an exploration of the photographer's harrowing feeling of loneliness and isolation, which he beautifully symbolizes using sorrowful images in his zoo animals photo series. Amengual shot his pictures when he was visiting the Barcelona Zoo in the dead of winter. The way he was able to capture the animals looking anxious and sad speaks of his inner turmoil.

The haunting and dully hued images will haunt you as you look into the lingering stares of these animals who are confined, vulnerable and alone.
