New Calendar — Animal Tales 2016 Wall Calendar
Dogs, cats, sheep, bears … whether alone or in a crowd, we’re all traveling together on a journey of discovery. Hungarian photographer Sarolta Bán’s digitally composed images, which she calls “photo allegories,” are modern-day fairy tales with a myriad cast of creatures that inspire hope with a bit of longing for finding a new home, a place to belong. Originally a jewelry designer, Bán discovered photography and learned, through experimentation, how to refine her curious compositions. Many of her dog portraits were created to illuminate the need for shelter animals to find forever homes. She wanted to share the charm – and sometimes the mystery – below the surface so we could see the true nature of these wonderful pets. Her images are rife with symbolism, and the lush, dreamlike landscapes reveal adventures into a world of wonder where anything seems possible and where the imagination reigns.
