About the book
PANNAFOTO INSTITUTE proudly presents the fifth photo publication titled Wildtopia by Edy Purnomo.
Edy portraits an absurd reality of today’s zoo. He is extremely concerned with a move to massively reduce the meaning of animal’s lives. He understands that a camera lens is able to craft knowledge, a reflection, a critique and opposition. To him, a zoo may become a last bastion to fight animal extinction.
The photographs on this book were taken between 2014-2016 in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Batu and Pasuruan.
