I was trying to think of something creepier than a small chained up monkey wearing dingy clothes and a dirty doll mask, but I failed to find anything close. Perttu Saksa is a Finnish photographer and visual artist who brings us his newest series, “A Kind of You”, where he traveled to Indonesia to take portraits of trained performance monkeys who attempt to act like humans in order to ask for money from bypassers. Haunting, creepy, and cruel are words that come to mind.
