  1. It seems a little dark but it seems to me that there’s a message saying that in every ones eyes we all see something different, someone different.The mood is somewhere in between dark and fun but i get a little creeped out because it’s not normal and I didn’t expect to see these types of photos.The lighting makes the mood darker but it also brings the emotions out.

  2. What feelings do you get out of these shots?
    When i look at these images i feel like the artist is trying to show that there is a little bit of nature in all of us and maybe they are trying to be funny or are saying these animals portray these people

    What mood do the photos contain?
    The mood in the images is kinda boring i guess .. the people arent doing anything they are just standing there and they have animals/ plants for faces. They are very interesting images they just dont have a mood really

    Is the emotion fun, or dark, or something in between? IF there is an emotion id have to say it is a fun one or somewhere inbetween dark and fun

    How does the lighting affect the mood of these photos?
    well the darker lighting around the people gives off the darker mood

    Feelings I get when I see these photos are Interested, happy, relaxed, etc. I mainly get interested in the pictures because it is something different and new.

    What mood do the photos contain?
    These photos contain a happy mood, people get joyful when seeing animals dressed like humans and acting like humans.

    Is the emotion fun, or dark, or something in between?
    Kinda in between. The backgrounds are always dark and black, but the emotion is still fun because the animals and flowers in human bodies is funny in itself.

    How does the lighting affect the mood of these photos?
    The lighting affects the mood because though the background is dark, the main subject is welly illuminated and it makes the pictures flow and overall a better picture.

  6. The feelings that I get from these photos are strange, unique and wonder how the photographer did those photos. The mood that I get from those photos I think of that the people with animal heads in a standard black background and those photos are new and fresh to me because I never seen those type of photos before. The emotion in the photos to me are some sort of funny because animals and flowers are in human clothing and I also get new and fresh because like I said I never seen those photos before.

  7. I honestly get kind of a creepy feeling from the animal shots however the flower shots seem a bit less weird. It is a very creative idea, and it does step outside of the box. All of these shots seem to be perfectly laid out, and clean.The lighting adds too the uncanny feeling and really makes the detail in the photo pop.

  8. The mood i get out of looking at these photos are like a scary movie vibe. The mood of the photos are kinda like a creepy fantasy mood, creepy yet interesting and fun. The emotion is somewhere in between dark and fun, mostly dark but a hint of fun. The lighting and background kinda make it have the creepy vibe, if it were outside in its natural habitat i think it wouldn’t be as creepy.

  9. These photos are almost creepy. It feels like there isn’t much of a “mood” to it; just neutral. Although, I really like these photos and think that they are unique and cool. I think the lighting is what makes it almost creepy, because it’s dark in the background, and an animal in human clothes in the dark isn’t necessarily pleasant.

  11. My feelings towards these photos are “weirded out” and “bewildered”.
    I do not really see a mood, but rather it is like the subjects are just there. If I were to describe what “mood” I think there is, it would be plain.
    There is not really emotion but one could change the images and make it fun/funny.
    The lighting makes the subjects dark and mysterious but it could also have a different or secondary meaning.

  12. I feel genuinely disturbed by these pictures, as they look human, except they aren’t. It’s almost like something from a nightmare realm.

    The photos, at least I believe, are meant to scare you, but leave you a bit curious as to how the figures function.

    The emotion from these photos are dark. A goat dressed in a v-neck sweater? Now that’s dark. It’s like something I’d see in Alice In Wonderland.

    I feel that the lighting makes the dark aspect of the photos reveal themselves further, making the creepiness even better.

    These photos are very different. When I look at them I don’t really know what to think or how these images were even thought of. I think these photos are very different. I have definitely never seen anything like this before.

    Entertainment. I look at these photos and laugh and really wonder, if animals could wear clothes, what would they wear?

    The emotion is fun. I don’t think the photographer had any problems with these photos being dark or sad or anything. I think they are funny.

  15. I absolutely adore this series because it makes me laugh. The lighting and editing is terrific! the feelings i get when i view his work is mixed, mixed because the moods of the furry subjects seem to be a tad serious or melancholy (reading facial expressions of animals is not my specialty) so i have a feeling the photos have an ulterior motive or message. maybe its how human caused deforestation is disrupting the lives of these wild animals, or how zoos and sanctuaries are taking beautiful wild animals and domesticating them. Just a few theories that came to my mind, but i would need more background to understand completely. regardless, i truly enjoy viewing these pictures because they make me happy, kind of looking at an old children’s book or cartoon i would watch as a kid.

  24. What feelings do you get out of these shots?
    After viewing these images, I kind of get the “creepy” kind of feeling just because they are animals that are dressed fashionably well. I feel like the photographer is trying to tell us that we all have a “Spirit Animal” inside of us or that eventually, all of us will bloom into something beautiful.

    What mood do the photos contain?
    These photos contain a “gloomy” “interesting” type of mood. It makes me wonder how he made these photos.

    Is the emotion fun, or dark, or something in between?
    I feel like the emotion is more of a dark kind of theme because the lighting in the photos are very dim, and focuses much more on the subject.

    How does the lighting affect the mood of these photos?
    The darker the lighting, the more down and sad the audience will feel. Lighting must be appealing to the eyes and these pictures just doesn’t include much of it.

  25. I had some mixed feelings looking at these shots. At first they were funny to me because of the absurdity of them but as I looked at more of them they kind of became creepy to me. There is definitely a dark undertone to the light, happy emotion that they emote at first. The lighting makes the subject the focal point of the photo and creates nice shadows on the subject.

  30. these photos make me feel like i’m watching the weirdest national geographic ever but regardless of that feeling i noticed how the positioning of the bodies, frontward direction of the heads and also the way that the outfits the models are wearing have colors that play well with the colors of flowers chosen such as with the girl in the yellow and white dress who has a head of yellow flower

  32. These photos give me the vibe that this guy has an imagination. They’re kind of weird, but that’s mostly because they’re not something I’ve ever seen or even thought of ever and they are different than the usual things. The mood these photos contain would be a thoughtful, different feel. Seeing things for more than they are at first. The emotion is more fun than it would be dark, the idea of adding clothes and human traits to animal heads is a little silly, so that adds straight away to the seriousness that associates with the photos. The lighting affects the mood because there is shadows only on the most important parts of the portrait. The background is completely blacked out, drawing more attention to the outfit and the head.

  33. These photos catched my attention. These photos show creativity. I can’t quite pick one mood to describe these photos. I can see the mood being very serious but I also can see the mood being kind of silly in a way. i feel like the emotion is both, dark and fun more of something in between the two. The lighting makes the pictures creepy. Also a little disturbing. Over all though I do like these photos they are unique.
