    'Captive Landscapes'

    We, as humans, go to great lengths to satisfy our desire for a connection with the natural world, especially in our interactions with wild and exotic animals. Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals. In this series, I photographed the interiors of animal enclosures at 12 different zoos across the U.S and Europe. These images invite the viewer to question the role of these constructed habitats, and explore the motivations behind collecting, preserving, and controlling the natural world.

    Daniel Kukla, a native of Indianapolis, Indiana, currently resides in Brooklyn, New York where he works as a freelance and fine art photographer. He is a graduate of The International Center of Photography program in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism. Prior to his photographic education he attended The University of Toronto and received his B.Sc. in Evolutionary Ecology, Biology, and Evolutionary Human Anatomy. He works at the juncture of these disciplines, focusing in on capturing images that have the power to articulate our ever-changing relationship with the natural world. His work has been exhibited in the United States, UK, Burma, Canada, China, Lithuania, Malaysia, Singapore and Spain, and has been published in the New York Times, The Washington Post, Time Magazine, On Earth Magazine, Guernica Magazine, Esquire, and National Geographic.

    'My artistic practice is informed by the joint intersection my work as a photographer, and my formal training in the biological and anthropological sciences. I work at the juncture of these disciplines, focusing in on capturing evidence as images that have the power to articulate our ever-changing relationship with the natural world. In both science and photography the act of collection is universal. Whether specimen or subject, the collection process allows one to categorize, control, and critically describe ones findings, and contribute them to the collective work of others in the field. I find that this process allows me to engage my audience with contemporary social and environmental themes, ranging from the commonplace to the esoteric. As a calculated investigation, my projects document and bear witness to important social, political and ecological issues; through highlighting the beautiful and the bizarre, and retaining the precision and experimentation of the scientific perspective, I offer a vantage point on these subjects that can destabilize, challenge and provoke.'
