Yola Monakhov Stockton on the Muybridge's Horse Blog

 

It was about a year ago that I first came across Yola Monakhov Stockton’s work, and several of her images have stuck with me ever since. In her series The Nature of Imitation, the artist looks closely at birds, using color film and studio props to explore “the connection between seeing, knowing, and wanting.” The pictures are warm, lovely and romantic. They capture a powerful tension that exists in the relationship between humans and animals, particularly birds, one that comes from the fact that the creature can quickly burst into movement – into flight – and disappear from view.
