Cows: A Closer Look
A Photographic Essay
Paul W. Thoresen

STUNNING IMAGES THAT LOOK AT COWS THROUGH A NEW LENS

Here are Holsteins as theyíve rarely been depicted beforeó
abstractions in black and white, artistís models with long-lashed
liquid eyes, soulful individuals and sisters of the herd, the fecund
embodiments of motherís milk, tenants of the land, spirits and
myths.

Fine art photographer Paul Thoresen captures the very essence
of cows with his camera. He has been artfully photographing
Holstein cattle for more than five decades, mostly on three
family farms within a mile of his home near Paoli, Wisconsin.
Cows: A Closer Look contains more than eighty photographs in
both black-and-white and color.

Paul W. Thoresen lives in rural southern Wisconsin and has
retired from a career as a health psychologist at the University of
Wisconsin Medical School. A devoted fine art photographer, his
work has been exhibited in juried photography shows for more
than thirty years.
