Body Language

Whether shadow play with the hands, pantomime or the sign language. There are different ways to represent animals. How similar are humans and animals? A still growing series about the connection between animals and humans, created with body control and a touch of surrealism through photo editing. In this series you can find a frog, a deer, a penguin, a butterfly and a hedgehog. For the butterfly I used the symbol for the butterfly in the sign language. For the other animals, I searched for distinctive recognition features, wondering how they can be represented.
