Wild Animals Curiously Displaced Inside Supermarkets

Have you ever ventured down a grocery aisle only to come face-to-face with a tiger eyeing the same packaged poultry as you? Probably not, but it’s an unusual situation that photographer Agan Harahap makes a reality in his intriguing series titled Garden Fresh. The photo series exhibits a diverse set of animals casually walking through various sections of a supermarket, as though they themselves are shopping for ingredients for their next dinner party.

The Indonesia-based photographer says, “It is like a fable about a journey undertaken by the animals when they venture into our daily lives. The animals are confronted by a new reality that is in con?ict with their natural habits and habitats… The animals are stripped of their own identities and are used as empty vessels to be ?lled with the human drama of parody, satire and allegory. We cannot help but see animals from a human vantage point, and therefore in some sense all the works in the present exhibition are actually about us.”
