These images look like they came right out of my worst nightmare, literally. I imagine if we were trapped in some magically creepy world, this is what we’d see. However unusual these photos are, you have to admit the photography, and vivid imagery is nothing short of impressive.
The photos come from a couple who go by the name “Mothmeister“, passionate taxidermy collectors who portray anonymous ugly masked creatures as a reaction against the dominant exhibitionism of the selfie culture, and beauty standards marketed by the mass media.
According to Mothmeister, “We reincarnate these dead critters into fairy tale figures by dressing them up like the Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter did. Our surreal inspiration comes from our own imagination, dreams and nightmares.”
