Segundas Pieles. Animales vestidos a la moda por Miguel Vallinas.

(Extraído de COLOSSAL)

Hace un tiempo publicábamos una entrada dedicada a los zoo-retratos de Yago Partal, y, sin duda, un proyecto fotográfico de similar planteamiento, tal vez más complejo en ejecución, es este de Miguel Vallinas, una nueva revisión de las fronteras entre antropomorfia y zoomorfia.

When first encountering this body of photographs Madrid-based advertising and industrial photographer Miguel Vallinas it’s easy to view it as a familiar “animals dressed as people” project. But as you look closer you realize it’s quite a bit more than that. Aside from the solid retouching, lighting and overall execution, Vallinas took this anthropomorphic project a bit further and imagined what the fully-realized wardrobe of each animal might look like if it were wearing human clothes.
Titled Segundas Pieles (Second Skins), the ongoing series includes some 50+ animals whose personalities seem to be perfectly amplified by their pitch-perfect attire, making the portaits just a bit more human than animal. I’m pretty sure the hipster bird in the cardigan works at a coffee shop by my house. The work is a sister project to another series called simply Pieles where the photographer portrays himself in a wide range of professions. (via lustik)
