When photographer Mark Peckmezian was commissioned by New York Magazine to do a documentary on the contemporary art market, he never imagined meeting the sassy and fabulous Miles the pig. During the ten-day shoot, Peckmezian spent an evening at the gallerist David Zwirner‘s home. The party was full of collectors and artists alike for the painter Oscar Murillo’s latest show set to open the next day. In the midst of the hubbub, Peckmezian spotted Miles, the pet pig of Zwirner’s daughter and a big hit with the elite crowd present. Miles strikes such a pose it makes you wonder if he’s used to all the attention.
Peckmezian is represented commercially by Webber Represents.
