Large format chimping! Fuzzy photographs set to sell for up to £70,000
A set of photos about to go under the hammer are so fuzzy and out of focus they look like they were taken by a monkey.
But you’d be wrong – it was a chimpanzee, called Mikki.
The 15-year-old was trained to take photos by contemporary artists Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid after they discovered the primate at the Moscow Circus.
Mikki was encouraged to take pictures with a Polaroid before he switched to an analogue camera and then began to use an antique one.
