I’ve been working on a series of fictional portraits for years. Though these pieces start life as photos, in the end they largely become PhotoShop constructions. This image, Mother and Child Reuinion (apologies to Paul Simon), is typical of the portfolio.
Shot at the San Diego Zoo about a year ago with a Nikon D300 camera and a long lens.
I’ve spent many peaceful hours with the Gorillas and the Orangs. Hopefully, this portrait illustrates why.
