A’s Fables comprises a series of photographs of various dimensions, of animals taken at zoos around the world, combined with altered pages of storybooks. These images and texts were produced from photographs shot using digital cameras and alterations by hand, with the aim of weaving together the fantasies and power relations created by personification and metaphor.
