There is something awfully comforting about the fact that somewhere in your room, a grinning skeletal structure of a velociraptor or some indeterminable vertebrate is waiting for you to come home. Which is the effect that the images from French photographer Marc Da Cunha Lopes’ Vertebrata series has on me.
Rodolphe Simeon is a French photographer living in Canada. His work is a bit on the wild side: scissors, blood, abnormalities, sexuality and violence, everything can be found there. Whether he shoots people on the street or uses staged portraits in the studio, his morbid photos are always full of energy.
