About the Artist

About the artwork

Considered as an extension of the ?Pieles? [Skins] series in which Miguel Vallinas Prieto staged himself exercising various professions or mastering a number of ancestral traditions, the ?Segunda Pieles? [Second Skins] collection created in 2014 depicts a fantastical world in which taxidermied animals have taken the place of individuals. With the intention of investigating ?the animal inside all of us?, the photographer positions them in full-length poses in front of his lens, as though they were real models. Their clothes serve as second skins, each sporting sophisticated styles of dress. The artist humorously questions our preconceived ideas regarding identities and appearances in the face of social diktats. Comprising 50 photos, the ?Segunda Pieles? collection has earned the photographer worldwide recognition.
