The Farm Family

Drawing upon the fashion portrait photography of Annie Leibowitz and David LaChapelle, I give the animals an arena for self-expression as well as humiliation. My objective is to portray an alternative world where animals are not our possessions, but individuals whom we subject to the same idealization as we would a contemporary fashion model.

Intensely stylized, The Farm Family portraits demand immediate emotional reaction, drawing on the raw connection between viewer and subject and exposing the instinctive, compassionate union of species.
