These mesmerizing portraits show just how similar humans are to apes

Over the past few years, Polish photographer Pawel Bogumil has traveled to more than fifteen zoos throughout Europe to capture images of primates displaying human traits and behaviors. Pawel's black and white portraits are enthralling and profound; sincere in their depictions of reality. His photo series, titled inHUMAN, is being exhibited at the Leica Gallery in Warsaw until April 3, 2016.

Curator Rafal Lochowski offers a few words about the exhibit: "Some of the photographs make us afraid of these mighty animals – others make us wonder who the person is and what they are thinking about. We subconsciously forget that we are looking at an animal. These skillfully made portraits by Bogumil make our hair stand on end."
