After I set my radar tuned to spot mainstream media images that push at the species barrier, I started noticing them all over the place.
The latest example is this just-released photo of a sultry 25-year-old Angelina Jolie posing for renowned fine art photographer David LaChapelle with an unidentified white horse. It is a never-before-seen outtake from a shoot done in Los Angeles a dozen years ago for Rolling Stone magazine.
Titled Horseplay, the photo will be sold through Christie’s auction house in London with a group of prints called The Wild Side of Photography. Since its release yesterday, Horseplay has already received a flurry of media attention. Christie’s expects it will fetch from £25,000 to £35,000 at the sale, scheduled for May 15.
