Portrait of Stanley the Donkey

When I photographed Stanley the Donkey in 2012, I had no idea this little guy’s charm, smile and pooping on the studio floor would be the inspiration for a new collection of work. Photographing Stanley was the result of a failed negotiation with an animal trainer – I wanted to photograph a Wallaby they had, but could only afford the Donkey… And so it goes – with this fine ass, the Fairy Tale Animal series was born. Stanley lives happily in Sacramento and makes his keep by bringing smiles to those who visit.
