Portraits in a Golden Cage

As I was moving around with my camera in a zoo in Boston, I saw these animals staring at me through the glass walls. Each of them was pleading to get out this concrete world. They wanted to go home; to the place where they belong. They looked like that prisoner, who is facing a life imprisonment for someone else's wrongdoings. Their eyes held a series of emotions from unhappiness, hopelessness, boredom, isolation, pain to anger and hatred.
