Capiche – Prey

Capiche, 'Prey'

Prey is part of a series called Meet the Family, a dysfunctional group that plays with perception. The works are a reflection of how quickly we judge or assume the obvious. At first glance the images seem obvious in their expression and meaning. However, after reading the title it adds a whole new dimension to the work, introducing a new conclusion.
