Miguel Vallinas Prieto is an advertiser and industrial photographer based in Madrid, Spain who began his ‘Second Skins’ series with the intention of ‘investigating the animal in us all. This whimsical photo series sees various animals dressed in contemporary outfits, posing as typical human models would. The clothes appear to match their personalities, acting as a true second skin.
Miguel didn’t actually wrestle a roll-neck onto a swan or sweet-talk a hippopotamus into donning a Barbour. The taxidermied specimens are photographed in various museums and private collections, while each outfit is modeled by volunteers in Miguel’s studio. The two images are then spiced together by the artist Miguel Vallinas Prieto.
