Bojana Knezevic Zakir "Catpeople"


I started this "artistic ritual" of merging human with animal when I made the first shot of the man who is incredibly reminded me of the Jaguar. I've decided to do a series of close-up shots of the people who emulate wild cats .I was choosing models by my own instinct for identifying people with the totems of cats. Models are from Serbia and Brazil, where I lived while I was working on this project. Using the new technology, I've manipulated facial features and the photography transformation led me to mythical, surreal "CATPEOPLE" vision. Eyes, ears, and snouts of wild cats are integrated in the male and female human faces, creating oddly mixture of two beings, and even a classically harmonious portraits.
