Photographic portraits of farm animals by Rob MacInnis

03 Brad 1 High res copy

Farm animals are the step-children of the animal kingdom. Rarely seen and underappreciated, they toil away their lives for our consumption. Through this moving series of photographic portraits, photographer Rob MacInnis hopes to elevate the status of these humble creatures. MacInnis said, “I began photographing farm animals because I was interested in using them as a metaphor for the fashion model. I wanted to draw parallels between literally consuming them, which we do everyday, and the way the photograph ‘consumes’ its subject.

Using a medium-format Hasselblad camera, MacInnis photographs his subjects under soft dreamy lighting like that used in fashion spreads. “I take the conventions from the fashion world and apply them to the underclass barnyard animal,” explained MacInnis.
