Cabinet of Curiosities

pcl2
Laszlo Layton, 'Scarlet Ibis' [Click here for larger view at source]

Petter Fetterman Gallery is showing Laszlo Layton's Cabinet of Curiosities.
Laszlo sais this about his images: "Although our modern natural history books are much more scientifically accurate, there is a certain romantic charm that I admire in earlier illustrations that is usually lacking in modern photographic representations. With this series I am attempting to recapture and distill the essence of those old natural history illustrations, but through the photographic medium." (via gmtPlus9)
