Entry Description: Dogs, with their proud posture, and goats, with their comic look, seem to be creatures with high visual appeal. The idea of asymmetric compositions came to me while I was observing my contact sheets. There I had found a way of intensifying the enigma that the animal represents. From this moment on, every time I photograph those animals, I am always careful to find the frameouts and the light that better enhances the creation of the asymmetric compositions.
Afterwords, while working in the darkroom, I try to preserve the original shapes. All this work is improved on the computer, when I proceed to the assembly of the elements of composition.
