I am always a sucker for animals in fashion editorials. However,
I am not a huge fan of snakes in live form,in truth, I am petrified
of them. But, the use of snakes in these images does not bother me.
The added texture and movement is very interesting.
This image is sort of like Where's Waldo, but I like how you have to hunt
to find the model, and how the Alexander McQueen platforms are the
focal point of the whole image. Still, Raquel, you are a brave woman.
Wonder if any of them are fake?
These images of Anja Rubik by Knoepfel & Indlekofer for Vogue Paris are amazing. Again, the snakes add that extra element.
This portrait of German actress Nastassja Kinski by Richard Avedon is a personal favorite and the first photo I ever saw that I liked with a live snake.
However, I would have screamed like a little girl when the snake
kissed my ear.
