Engineered By Nature
This project was shot for Leica and exhibited at the Leica S studio in Mayfair London from October- November 2017. All of the images were shot on the Leica S.
The Idea for this project was born through the study of miniature animals. There's surprisingly little known amongst the world of miniature animal breeds where they are bred primarily for aesthetic pleasure. Our generation of photographers manipulate their imagery with digital effects, but I saw this as an opportunity to do something completely genuine, where the manipulation was down to pure photographic skill. All the images in the collection follow the same pattern, a hard-edged graphical aesthetic that highlights the natural design of these perfect miniature animals.
