Mark Prethero's series "Beneath the Pavement, the Beach" is a combination of medium format film and digital photography.  Through digital editing, the images place wild animals in urban settings.

Author: “Alone, we are forced to recognize that we have been created, like everything else. Only our soles, when encouraged, remember the origin, wordlessly.” (Berger, J. 1992)

Todd: Mark’s photograph combine the surreal and sublime with a twist of humor that makes me smile.  At the same time they reflect on important questions about environmental ethics and our relationship with the planet. Cities constructed by man tower over these wild creatures... By putting these animals in our world, he humanizes them. Though I like his entire series (take a look at all five on his website), this one is my favorite. It seems the most full of mystery. I’m not sure whether I’m relate to the hyenas more, or to the horse.

Honza: I really like how sensitively and plausibly the author placed these animal actors in an environment, where they normally do not belong. It could be tempting to turn this concept into a more simple "joke" (ie. an elephant walking down Main Street). Mark Prethero avoided such a straighforward solution and in doing so he created a very impressive and somewhat disturbing situation –- the quietly standing horse and two hyenas in a combat position -- which gives wide space for interpretation of the story or plot. In addition, I was intrigued by the contrast between the organic animal "models" and the geometric lines constructing the photograph.
