Robin Schwartz

None of us have ever owned a monkey, mainly for the reasons outlined in this article. Pet monkeys have a ‘tendency to bite’, which is NOT COOL, but photographer Robin Schwartz has revealed their super cute/cheeky/amusingly glum sides, and we’re now fighting hard against strong desires to take one in. This, Schwartz says in the series’ accompanying text, is his “dream world of primates” – what a lovely, slightly weird dream world it is.
