‘I am Someone’ presents a stunning series of emotive portraits of rescued farm animals from award-winning photographer Gary Sheppard, featuring beautiful cow Valentine, cute pigs Harriett and Wilbur, cheeky goat Sophie and their many other farm friends; the photographic exhibition is designed to challenge the general public perception of farm animals by presenting them as ‘I am someone, not something’.
Sheppard’s powerful and thought-provoking images feature rescue animals from the Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary in the Lower Hunter Valley. Taken in a studio-style setting the images show the animals as beautiful, sentient beings who deserve greater empathy and compassion from our human society.
Where Pigs Fly (WPF) is a not-for-profit, registered charity providing care and shelter to farm animals in need, all rescued from abuse, neglect, abandonment or inevitable slaughter. The Sanctuary is currently home to more than 100 residents, a mix of rescue cows, sheep, pigs, hens, goats and horses who are now free to be themselves on 100 acres of prime pasture.
The stunning portraits of these delightful farm animals are available for purchase at ‘I am Someone’ with all profits going to Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary to assist in its ongoing rescue and outreach work – www.wherepigsfly.org or https://www.facebook.com/wherepigsflyfarmsanctuary/WHAT: ‘I am Someone’ photographic exhibition
