Seeing Humanity In Farm Animals
You can tell a lot about a person from their expressions. Perplexed eyebrows, pursed lips. Animals are no different. From raised noses to lowered heads, outward displays of emotion are not exclusive to humans. But perhaps that isn't the message inked in these portraits taken by Ronan Yver. Farm animals have their own stories. Their lives consist of more than rolling in the mud and grazing the fields. The perception of farm life cannot be taken at face value. You have to dig deeper for the truth under the skin.
