Haunting Animal Portraits
The 'Trophies' Series Features Eerie Monochromatic Animal Captures

A series of spooky animal captures entitled ‘Trophies’ by American photographer C. Owen Lavoie capture animals illuminated by a sliver of light. The monochromatic photos feature stoic animals shrouded in darkness. Each capture reveals a portion of an animal with the rest hidden away in the dark. As a result, the viewer is forced to focus on each animal’s grim expression.

Though Lavoie managed to capture strong emotions in each portrait, the subjects were not alive. The photographer used taxidermied beasts in order to take the stunning shots. According to the artist, Trophies “captures their tragic story of innocence, anger, and fear through the expressions forced upon them by taxidermists and then modified by the lens.”
