– taken at Zoológico de Buenos Aires, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Known to many as one of the saddest zoos in the world, the Zoológico de Buenos Aires, in Argentina, harbors many animals that demonstrate the same defeat this poor orangutan displays. Of course, I wasn’t aware of this before I paid my entrance fee, if I did, I would rather have spent the pesos on a panchuque or a café con leche. The title, Abatido, is spanish for despondent, which I believe portrays perfectly the low spirits and loss of hope this little guy shows.

A few shots of the orangutan without the dirty window pane:

Orangutan no.1   Orangutan no.2
