Just standing and staring at Tuan, the orang-utan, is a frequent pastime for the crowds

Just standing and staring at Tuan, the orang-utan, is a frequent pastime for the crowds at Chessington Zoo in Surrey. He stares right back like this. Looking thoughtful. Holiday times, of course, bring in an extraordinary variety of humans for him to study. They probably all help to amuse Tuan, who has little else to do and nowhere else to go. But if people were put in cages, would crowds of orang-utans queue to view them? Now theres something to think about. May 1974 P004113

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from Chessington Zoo in Surrey, Tuan the orangutan engages in a timeless pastime - standing and staring. The crowds are drawn to him, finding amusement and curiosity in his thoughtful gaze. It is during holiday times that an extraordinary variety of humans flock to the zoo, becoming subjects for Tuan's study. With little else to do and nowhere else to go, Tuan finds solace in observing these peculiar creatures who come to observe him. One cannot help but wonder if the tables were turned and people were confined within cages, would hordes of orangutans eagerly queue up to view them? This thought-provoking question lingers as we delve into the depths of human-animal interactions. The monkeys' facial expressions captured here reveal a sense of humor that transcends species boundaries. It is through such encounters that we gain insight into our shared existence on this planet. This photograph transports us back to May 1974 when moments like these were frozen in time by Mirrorpix. As we reflect upon this image from Memory Lane Prints, let us appreciate the beauty of nature's creations and contemplate our place among them.
