This Model Really Is A Heifer. Jean Baptiste-Mondino’s Cow Photos For A Oh La Vache!

On display at The Milk Factory is a series of black and white photos by fashion photographer Jean Baptiste-Mondino of a Holstein Cow named Hermione donning hats designed by a UK milliner.

This series of 21 black and white photos was initially designed for an exhibit in Philippe Starck’s Hudson Hotel but according to La Lettre de la Photographie, the hotel managers were not amused and the portraits were quickly relegated to the stables. Now, through the end of April, the images are on view in Paris.
