Gabi Stickler

Amateur German photographer Gabi Stickler is a big fan of small creatures, but her far-and-away favorite is snails. Though she only began taking pictures in 2015, I think it’s safe to say she’s become very adept at capturing the beauty and personality (?) of her subjects. Though they look like composites, Stickler’s photos are all taken in situ. She doesn’t use Photoshop for anything but the usual cropping and color correcting. She refers affectionately to her subjects as “beautiful, curious and courageous” creatures, and her fondness for them comes through loud and clear in her pictures.

If you go to her website, you’ll see that many of her photos are of her other favorite subject, her golden retriever Mali, who seems every bit as interested in snails as Sticker is. I now realize I profiled Stickler (and Mali) back in 2016. She may be an accidental repeat, but I regret nothing!

You can follow the adventures of Stickler and Mali (and snails) on the photographer’s website and also on Facebook.

  2. Fantastic! I never imagined snails could be made to look magical but this photographer has achieved it. I have nothing against snails, slugs or worms but I cannot touch them. One of my sisters, however, adores snails and had three Giant African snails in a tank in our shared bedroom. They used to escape all the time and slime all over my bed. I am, therefore, going to send the link to the photographer’s website to my sister.
