EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history - the 28th anniversary of Guy the gorilla's arrival at London Zoo on November 5th, 1975. The date itself explains his unique name, which has become synonymous with this magnificent creature. In this image, taken by Ron Burton, we see Guy quietly observing his surroundings, showcasing an air of tranquility uncommon for an urban gorilla. Comparing his current weight of 33 stone to a mere 14 lbs upon his arrival on November 5th, 1947, it is evident how much he has grown and thrived under the care of London Zoo. This gentle giant embodies strength and resilience as he continues to captivate visitors from all corners of the globe. The backdrop of Camden in England adds a touch of nostalgia to this snapshot from the 1970s. Guy's facial expression reveals both wisdom and curiosity about the world around him. As one gazes into those soulful eyes, it becomes clear that there is more to this incredible creature than meets the eye. Ron Burton's skillful photography allows us to relive this historic moment and appreciate Guy's remarkable journey over nearly three decades at London Zoo. This print serves as a reminder not only of our shared connection with animals but also our responsibility to protect and preserve their habitats for generations to come.
