The Serpentine Art of Guido Mocafico

guido mocafico snake photography serpens collection 11 The Serpentine Art of Guido Mocafico

Parisian artist Guido Mocafico doesn’t use paint, clay or a chisel to create these brilliant works of natural art.  His art form is smooth, silent and scaly-skinned, the living creatures of the serpent world.  Earlier this decade, Mocafico began photographing a wide variety of living snakes in a color-neutral environment.  The close-quarter confines in these images cause the snakes to wrap and overlap amongst eachother, creating amazing shapes and patterns of bodies and colors.  No matter your opinion of our scaly, legless friends, these images are truly breath taking.  The colors are so visually arresting in Guido Mocafico’s work, we’ve never seen eye candy quite like this.  [book: $50 at steidl, images via guido mocafico serpens, found via feature-shoot and notcot]
