Topeng monyet is a pro­ce­dure dur­ing which macaques are forced to per­form at street events in In­done­sia. This is not a tra­di­tional cus­tom, just a way for some peo­ple to earn a bit of money. These mon­keys usu­ally live in the most ab­hor­rent con­di­tions – iso­lated from other macaques, de­prived of any so­cial con­tacts that are im­por­tant to all pri­mates. But these tough facts also re­flect the poverty that is present in so many peo­ple‘s lives in In­done­sia. Nikon D810, 24-70mm f/2.8, 1/500 sec, f/4, ISO280
