An unusual, ironic photo album of posed portraits of prize-winning animals and their owners.
[Men and Animals] True competition champions -bulls and cows, stallions and mares, rams, goats, sheep and hogs- pose with great pride for the camera of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the renowned specialist in aerial photography and creator of very successful publications. Arthus-Bertrand works here on an unusual repertoire, making true portraits of beautiful specimens at major fairs in Europe and Latin America, accompanied by comments by specialists. In this amusing and decidedly different book Arthus-Bertrand photographs animals posing with their owners. Readers will be amused by this ironic look at the often surprising similarities between the humans and the animals.
