Back in June 1983 on a trip to Copenhagen Zoo with the photography class. Carrying my fathers heavy Topcon RE Super with a 135 mm lens. I clearly remember the feeling in my body and my unconscious and quick reaction. Saw what was about to happen a split second before it actually did. And made the shot. It felt like somebody else moved my arms. An older me, perhaps. I was 14, and felt the adrenalin of square hunting for the first time.

The photograph is signed and dated on the mat (passepartout) by Jesper Sø.

The digital print is made on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper Supreme. As the name suggests it has good archival abilities. That being said, nothing stays unmarked of time and light, so the image has a sort of build in change over time, as any other photographic image has.

The frame is made in Denmark using FSC certified wood (wood from sustainable forestry) and arrives to you without glass. Not because of the easier shipping, but because I believe photographs should be enjoyed without the visual disturbing light reflections on the glass.

The mat (passepartout) is cut from PH neutral carton.
