Photographer's Note

Tijuana is famous for several reasons, but without a doubt one of the more popular are "zonkeys", donkeys painted as zebras, found in Avenida Revolución in downtown Tijuana.
The donkeys and their carts were tourist attraction in the early 1900s, however back then photos were black and white, and white donkeys hardly registered on the photo. One photographer come up with the idea to paint his donkey with black stripes, and it was such a hit that everyone started imitating him.
