Pig-man Portrait

2017, digital manipulated photograph.

 

Pig-man Portrait is a photograph of a performance character. A photograph of a Pig-man dressed with a dark mans suit, white shirt and red tie; taken against an American Flag creating an analogy between the character and the American President Donald Trump, reflecting that way the surreal reality we live in these days; the idea of the corrupt, old-fashioned, ignorant, sexist, misogynist, magnate, disgusting, pig, man: a 21st century world leader.
