Untitled- Aaron Dunn

This image, by Aaron Dunn embodies a kind of absurdism that really appeals to me, and that I’d like to express through my photos. The question, upon viewing this image, has to be; “why?” – the post modern answer is “of course”.

While there is some resonance between rabbits and the woods – nothing else about the image makes much sense, but when you deconstruct it, you can see that it doesn’t have to.

The rabbits head has a particular aesthetic to it that reminds the viewer of cartoons in the early 1980’s- this is enhanced by the retro feel of the processing and the rainbow socks- it’s a very nostalgic photo and the nakedness of the model serves to subvert that nostalgia by introducing a sexual element.
