Animalia is an anthology of photographic images recreated from my own original photographs taken of household pets, animals on farms, or animals in the wild. Initially inspired by my own dogs that oftentimes look more like fantastical beasts when captured with my lens yawning or stalking imaginary prey, then just merely family pets. To this end, I place animals in locations that help me echo a component of a ‘fractured’ fairy-tale element while highlighting my own darkly whimsical humor. All in all I aim to retain a playful note while combining reality with my sometimes-dark imagination.
