Still Life: Ruven Avanador's photography | Haute Macabre

Still Life

Ruven afanador fashion editorial taxidermy pheasants

You may remember photographer Ruven Afanador from his “Evoluzione” photoshoot. Mr. Afanador does it again in this taxidermy-laden shoot. If anyone knows what this was shot for originally, let us know- I found it on the photographer’s website, but I can’t imagine it never saw publication.

Knock it Off tip: a really good white ruffled top is a wardrobe staple, but Talk Like a Pirate Day only happens once a year. Try something with cleaner, more modern lines, like the Couture Candy white poplin ruffle top ($116).

  1. love his stuff. does anyone know where these were taken? that grande alle in the first pic with the bird net is amazing. might be the same place as where that Nadia Auerman photograph with the dramatic black hat. if anyone knows please email me.

  2. I remember seeing this spread as part of Vogue Australia’s spring racing liftout or some such (the racetrack photos only, obviously). I doubt they commissioned it originally, though.
