Wayne Lennon Captures Contemporary Looks with Live Animal Accents

Photographer Wayne Lennon’s ‘à partir de la nature’ collection of shots features somber-mooded and simplistically clothed models holding wild animals.

The photo spread features one man and one woman who are photographed in contemporary clothing choices that are kept to bare minimums. Instead of accessories, the models simply hold foxes and skunks, which calls to mind regal portraits of royalty from many centuries ago.

While no particular piece of clothing featured is particularly featured, each item is meant to stand symmetrically with the juxtaposed animals that blend the feral with the feminine. Sharp angular lines used throughout the styling help to accentuate the soft lines of the humans and animals in the shoot while the use of shadow highlights the personal depth of the collection. Lennon is based out of the UK and highlights a number of international shots in his other collections. Stats for Naturally Monarchic Portraits Trending: Older & Warm
