A wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre in Cameroon that provides a safe home in captivity for several hundred primates ripped from the wild by illegal hunting activities. This photographic series was created over ten years and captured the relationships between the sanctuary and the wild; exploring the relationships between primates and their human caregivers, the sanctuary and the local people, people and wildlife.

I have been visiting and documenting the main subject of this series for more than 10 years. Over the past two years I have been able to dedicate more time to photography. I want to share the story of the human and non-human primates who have relied on the sanctuary for their survival for some time.
