The Farm Family

May 2–31, 2008
461 King St W

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.
