Serpens

 

The stunning artworks above belong to Guido Mocafico, Swiss photographer, renown especially for his still life shots. His Serpens series caught my interest, as the reptiles displayed look like  genuine art pieces, some kind of living sculptures. In doing so, the photographer brings a totally different perspective , because  we’re talking about real snakes (I can’t even imagine how the photo session took place).

However, the snake skin is probably the most underrated element in the fashionable world of animal prints, given that existing varieties are beyond imagination (as Alexander McQueen  pointed it  in his last collection – Plato’s Atlantis).
