The Center For Avian and Exotic Medicine in New York City isn’t your average pet clinic. Cats and dogs are not allowed, but you can find bearded dragons, sugar gliders, ferrets and more. Linda Kuo spent over a year documenting the extraordinary patients of the center for her series Displaced.  Kuo made portraits of pets as they underwent everything from routine checkups to complicated surgeries. Treatments include endoscopy, radiosurgery, mass removals, and even shell repair. The photographer captures her subjects in a way that’s clinical but compassionate, showing the special skills and curious technology required to treat exotic animals.
