Barry Downard designed houses, played drums, and worked as an art director before drifting into fashion and advertising photography. Inspired by the storytelling possibilities of digital photograph manipulation, he developed a unique style of photo-illustration. He lives with his wife, two Border collies, cats, and a transient population of wild and not-so-wild animals (some of whom are pictured in this book) on a small farm in the beautiful KwaZulu-Natal midlands of South Africa.
