“Aristotle once observed that ‘man is by nature a political animal.’

Jennifer Skupin takes this age-old profundity quite literally, compiling images of American presidents and the animals which they most resemble.

It turns out that Fillmore is a mallard, Grant is a grizzly and Obama a llama. For all those hungry for the ultimate series in presidential non-human doppelgangers, American Zoo is the feast you've been awaiting.”

b/w photographs of all the American presidents and their lookalike animals collected and edited by Skupin, with a short text by Zack McDonald, stapled, 22,5 x 17 cm, 90 not numbered pages, ed/500, Amsterdam 2010
