Happy birthday, Fernando Botero


Fernando Botero is a world famous Colombian artist. His figurative style is something which can not be copied. – I took these pictures in Museo Botero in Bogota, Colombia 2008. (I apologize for the quality of the pictures, especially the first one. I was forced to trigger my camera very quickly …)

Botero is born 19th April 1932, so Happy Birthday Fernando!

    The top photo is so funny. What luck that the model herself chose to wander through that room at that time. You certainly take your chances. I guess you have your camera ready all the time.
    I can understand depicting the derisible obesity of humans, but why the horse?
