World of Darkness
Been browsing my archive a lot recently, and under 2003/Projects I found these photos from the Bronx Zoo. We'd gone there a day after the big Northeast Blackout, around this time of year in 03, which was really scary especially up in Harlem. There were helicopters flying around with flood lights, police cars, people going wild in the total darkness. In the zoo they keep all the night animals in a black building called, of course, World of Darkness. The bats were all sleepy and quiet, probably they were all jet lagged from having to pretend it's night time during the day just to please us jaded humans. But everything was super pretty in the various colored infrared lighting and desert-Gothic mini landscapes.
