Donut doubles and animal portraiture? Yes, please! First off, I'm obsessed with animals so naturally I'm into this and how many times have you looked at your food and thought: this really looks like Aunt Sally? I have to admit, this happens to me quite oftenjust substitute the donut for odd shaped fruit and I swear you'll find George Constanza in every grocery store. Well, thankfully Brandon Voges, a photographer out of St. Louise, Missouri and part of the crew at Bruton || Stroube already shares a similar love for things that make life better. Coming from the agency world, you can see in Vogues' work that he's got storytelling master. His use of light is phenomenal and add in subject matters like weed beards, well that's a recipe for success. Check out his work on Behance here.  ArtSpeak: Brandon Vogues Donut Doubles
