I created the concept behind this photographic endeavor to convey an idea that I have frequently thought of as obscure- the manner that humans treat what is alive and what is dead. To convey the strange sentiments of the aforementioned notion, I placed humans in fur coats against a relatively minimalist background with live animals, ranging from cats, to dogs, to hedgehogs, with a single softbox as a light source. The overall meaning of the shoot is, of course, up to the interpretation of the viewer, and therefore relatively interesting. I believe this to be the most interesting and bizzare shoot I have ever done. I would like to give a massive shout out to my art teacher and mentor, Anne Austin Pearce, http://www.anneaustinpearce.com/ for providing fur coats and studio space to make this shoot possible.
