Zoo Portrait : Laurie, the white tailed deer
About Laurie, the white tailed deer:
White tailed deer have a very acute sense of smell and hearing. They can move their large ears to detect potential predators and be ready to run away. They also have a very good night vision and are also good swimmers, so they often enter the water to run away from their predators. They hop when running and they can jump as far as 7.5 metres.
Their coats change with the seasons of the year, being orange-brown in the warm months and grey-brown in the cold ones. This change takes place in less than two weeks and helps them blend in with the vegetation of their habitat.
About Yago, the artist:
Yago Partal (b. 1982, Barcelona) lives and works in Barcelona.
He creates his anthropomorphic images through a painstaking combination of photography, illustration and collage. His intention (in humanising animals) is to make us look again, to see them as "one of us" and not something to be exploited or endangered.
Yago has returned to university to study his passion, zoology. The sales from the Zoo Portraits have enabled him to support a number of wildlife charities over the years, and to work with children to educate the next generation about animal conservation.
Yago Partal is represented by Subject Matter Art, an online fine art gallery based in London. For any questions about his work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
