Explore the most dangerous creatures, photographed across the world, in Hamiltons fourth exclusively online exhibition. Guido Mocafico’s trilogy Venenum: Serpens, Aranea and M
Serpens depicts a vast collection of snakes, including vipers and cobras; Aranea, a selection of tarantulas from the Theraphoside family and Medusa, a beguiling yet unnerving selection of jellyfish.
Mocafico‘s intention is to provoke a reaction – his images incite the most conflicting of human emotions, which he himself experienced whilst photographing.
“I have always been terrified by these reptiles, but I also find them terribly fascinating. I felt a sort of repulsion-attraction for these living creatures.”
His vivid portrayal of the creatures highlighted against a black background plays with a combination of repugnance yet admiration for their beauty – dangerous and dark.
