Photographer James Mollison took portraits of more than 50 apes. "I decided against photographing in zoos or using ‘animal actors’ but traveled to Cameroon, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia to meet orphans of the bush meat trade and live pet trade," he said. Mollison compiled the series, titled James and Other Apes, into a 2004 book with the same name. (via Accidental Mysteries)
