About This Artwork
Yago Partal's Zoo Portraits are quite possibly the most recognisable images in our collection. First created in 2013, they quickly went viral and were featured by The Huffington Post, Time Out, CBS News and ABC News, among others. Yago's background is in conceptual design and he worked for fellow Spaniard Pedro Almodovar before focusing on his Zoo Portraits.
Artist's Statement: "The series emerged from an experimental process with digital media and an interest in anthropomorphism. Zoo Portraits was born, I guess, from a childish fascination for wildlife, for all those cartoons where animals behave as human beings. You also see the influence of the fashion world - I am interested in exploring a society obsessed with what people wear."

Born in 1982. After studying fine arts in Barcelona, Yago Partal started a creative studio project with Manel Soto and they spent six years together creating projects for companies like Filmax, Chesterfield International, Sitges Film Festival and Canal+. At the same time, he did some exhibitions of his own from his personal work.
After this period, he decided to put the design and illustration aside to focus exclusively on photography and video. He taught in a makeup school for one year and then opened his own studio while continuing to work on his own series. Shortly after, he joined the company ddt sfx (academy award for pan’s labyrinth) as a conceptual designer doing work for films like Pedro Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In” and J. A. Bayona’s “The Impossible”.
Recently he has begun Antonio Gomez’s “Nieve”, a production company where he works as a photographer and filmmaker while continuing his personal work in photography.
