Gallery of the Bizarre: Anthropological Edition - Children With Wildlife, Old Faces and Mothers.

This new volume of Gallery of the Bizarre series is different to all others, I usually select a handful of images from my private and chaotic vault and come out with a disordered (not to say anarchical) collection of beautiful oddities. Today there's no collages, no paintings, no illustrations and no digital designs. It's a pure and raw, extensive assortment of anthropological photographs that do not even come from my personal chamber of visual art but chaste and crude from my Internet procrastination.

Children peting wild animals, old faces and mothers of the world. These three things are not, abstractly speaking, related. Yet somehow they seem to make sense together, and in many ways they do. But... In what ways?
