    Dayaba Usman with the Monkey, Clear, Nigeria, 2005, by Pieter Hugo "Mostly, I am not particularly interested in conveying the actual truth about a person – and I would be extremely distrustful if that was someone’s intention. But a portrait can definitely convey some kind of emotive experience, or ecstatic experience, and some level of identification and catharsis that one experiences in relation to the portrait." #photowisdom #pieterhugo

Baboons are opportunistic omnivores, known to eat a wide variety of both plant matter and small animals. Fruits, seeds, tough roots and flowers make up the bulk of their diet, along with insects, eggs, lizards and rodents. However, their large size and power also means that they sometimes hunt and kill larger prey such as young Gazelles.
