“Look like the innocent flower, But be the serpent underneath it.” – Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’
What do you get when you combine exotic snakes, colored paper, and really good lighting? You get Slitherstition, a sssexy ssseries of sssnake portraitsss by Andrew McGibbon.
I have always had a sssoft ssspot for sssnakes. (Okay, I’ll ssstop now.) I was a summer snake sitter (so hard not to essss) at NYU, and I briefly had my own boa, Lord Byron. I used to bring him clubbing with me (to keep the boys away – worked like a charm). I’ve always been fascinated by how alien and beautiful the creatures are, and McGibbon’s work just reinforces that impress(s)ion for me.
Hope you enjoy the glorious shapes, colors and textures he captures in these photos as much as I did!
