After the great success of Symmeytrical Portraits (about the article here), the photographer Julian Wolkenstein
presents Pony Pin-Ups, an irreverent photo project with the horses, elegant animals, dressed like the real models!
“Of course we view our animals with fondness, we often bestow our animals with human traits, little wigs, clothes, and such. But with such a majestic creature as a horse our reaction is less whimsical, the size and nature of a horse commands respect. They have been alongside humans for so much of our history.This Pin-up series takes dressing animals up to a extreme, working with the horses natural hair, additional hair extensions and over all grooming with dramatic lighting provides a wry humour. Our reaction is mixed, its not whimsical, but it is definitely not serious either, we are left questioning our relation to, and our projections on animals. “
