**Fine Art Friday**

Do you like apes? I bet you don't like them as much as fine art photographer James Mollison.

I had the pleasure of meeting James a few months ago, and his portrait of apes are unlike anything I've ever seen. The eyes on these creatures are as expressive as human eyes (watch out creationists, this is blasphemy!)

He remembered each one's name and had a story about each one's personality. It was amazing.

He is represented by M.A.P. photo agents and aside from his fine art work, also does advertising campaigns. His most compelling work in this realm has definitely been for United Colors of Benetton working with Fabrica.

He also has a hilarious serious of portraits of music fans that aim to look just like their idol.His plan is to turn the images into a book.

Can you guess who these guys are fans of?

Keep an eye on him, he's got the talent and personality to make it big.
