Categorisation is a process that helps humans to understand any and all aspects of the world that we do not fully comprehend. The act of labelling and grouping essentially provides us with a sense of control, giving us the power in which we believe we need. In order to be able to categorise, we first need to identify, and typologies help us to do so. This body of work demonstrates the juxtaposition of natural human emotions with the realities of our world through multiple illustrated sets of highland cows. Presented in black and white, these illustrations offer an intimate and emotive approach to photographing livestock. With texture and symmetry, this series emphasises the individuality of each animal by presenting them at all angles, capturing every perspective possible.
