The photobook Seeds From The Zoo features over fifty images from Dunne’s two-year documentary photography project on Giza Zoo’s flora and fauna. Established under British occupation in 1891, the zoo houses trees native to India, Brazil, Burma, Australia, Madagascar and the Malay Peninsula, which were imported to Egypt via the Suez Canal. On visits to the site, Dunne collected fallen seeds in the grounds and later painted the pattern of animals skins on their pods.
