Sorrow In The Tropics, 1997-1999
The Natural History Museum Of Paris owns the world’s largest collection of zoological specimens and many of them are well displayed for visitors. We can see all kinds of zoological specimens, especially those from regions once colonized by European countries. A famous French anthropologist published a book called ‘ tristes tropiques’ in which he observed sorrow in the tropics. But in these photographs you could notice ‘tristes tropiques’ really exist in Paris.
