Having recently graduate from the Masters program at Rhode Island School of Design, Brooklyn based photographer Rob MacInnis’s series “Farm Family” combines studio lighting with the animals that we mainly look to for food. The series is comprised of staged group photographs in the style of a posed family photo and individual portraits that showcase each subject in a way that seems to expose a personality coming through in each photograph. MacInnis’s images seem to comment on society’s fashion consumerism through the professional way he photographs his subjects and relates it to our consumption of the farm animals he portrays.
