“Animal Food” is a specific hybrid animal photoshop project based on the manipulation of animals onto fruit and vegetables. A lot of the project was a study in colour, tone and negative space. Some people have said that it makes meat ‘vegan-friendly’, and others that it worsens ignorance about animals. But, the series was not created to force my own opinion but to encourage people to consider their own.
