Mark Laita is an advertising and fine art photographer based in Los Angeles. This work is from his project, Serpentine, of which he writes: ‘The sensual attractiveness of snakes, which coexists with their threatening, unpredictable and mysterious nature, is truly unique. This dichotomy, in which their beauty seems to be heightened by their danger, and vice-versa, is what I find so fascinating’.
