Marcus Davies, ‘Hippo, from The Animals Series’, ca. 2001, Gallery Vassie

From The Animals Series
In this series Davies excludes unnecessary detail from his images with his minimalist animal portraits. These highly abstract and graphic images reveal figures caught in a play of light and shade, positive and negative.
These portraits with their striped down simplicity, combined with Davies' mastery of photography, breathe playful life in to each and every one of these animals. This enables us to reach inside ourselves and see the beauty in the everyday, the beauty in the abstract simplistic form.
