About

Black Beauty evokes aesthetic and ethical questions arising from use of “Curing Genetics” in the breeding of animals. In this postmodern world, animals are commodities like any other commodity. Humans are no longer satisfied with the exotic and mysterious creations of nature, and seek to box nature into the human environment by redesigning and manipulating it in search of the ideal animal. I photographed these genetically modified animals against a black background which serves to accentuate the disappearance of the animal features and further emphasizes their objectification.
