19th-Century-Style Animal Portraits

Andrew Pinkham 19th century animal portraits

My animal portraits challenge what we think of as historical or authentic, whether it was yesterday or hundreds of years ago. They blur the lines of time and engage the viewer in how we interpret the idea of history itself.—Andrew Pinkham

Five years ago, Philadelphia-based photographer Andrew Pinkham set out to create a body of work that draws upon his love for animals and portraiture. Combining these passions led him to develop these 19th-Century-style animal portraits influenced by artists such as George Stubbs and John James Audubon.
