Zoo Portraits is a humorous photo series by Barcelona-based photographer Yago Partal that matches animal heads with human bodies. Partal amazingly matches animals to appropriate human bodies and even manages to match their personalities and styles. The photographer’s cast of characters include a dashing lady killer wolf in a tux, a polite raccoon, a hard rhino that would obviously be a bouncer and a sleazy sloth looking to have a good time at the clubs.

Although perhaps not intentionally a piece of creative activism, this project asks viewers to consider their own stereotypes, biases and associations about identity through a playful and artistic interpretation.
