You Can Dress ‘Em Up, But You Can’t Take Them Anywhere – Zoo Portraits by Yago Partal
Yago Partal Studied Fine Arts in Barcelona, Spain. Together with Manel Soto, he spent six years putting together projects for Chesterfield International, Filmax, and Sitges Film Festival. He also exhibited a number of personal work during this time. After a while, he put design and illustration aside to concentrate on video and photography. Yago joined the DDT SFX company (which won an Academy Award for Pan’s Labyrinth) as a conceptual designer. While there, he worked in several films like J. A. Bayona’s “The Impossible” as well as Pedro Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In”. “Zoo Portraits” is one of his more recent series which features anthropometric animals cleverly dressed-up as humans.
