小编摘要:近日,摄影师与模特们经过精心的准备与“伪装”,为观众们奉献了一组动人心魄的摄影:模特们与真正的野生动物零接触。

导读: 被从头到脚的人体彩绘覆盖,这些勇敢的模特们在一连串的野生动物身边摆出了完美的姿态。经过了长达7个小时的“伪装”,他们已经完全收放自如,无论是与巨蟒的亲密接触,还是蜷缩在凶猛的猎豹身边,亦或骑在野象背上。

Covered from head-to-toe in body paint, these brave models blend in perfectly alongside a succession of wild animals.

After seven-hours in make-up over four days, they look completely at home whether tangling with a 12ft-long python, staring down cheetahs, or riding on the back of an elephant.

The bizarre images were taken by wildlife photographer Lennette Newell and form part of her 'Ani-Human' series of portraits.

Growing up the daughter of a vet in San Francisco, her childhood dream was to become one of the animals her father used to treat.

Some four decades later, the 52-year-old artist has finally realised her ambition - with the help of models who have nerves of steel.

Ms Newell said: 'I wanted to show humans and their animal brothers in a new light that we maybe hadn't been seen before.

'The exotic animals came from in and around Los Angeles from renowned Hollywood and television trainers and we shot at the famous Smashbox Studios in LA.'

A great amount of care was taken to ensure that the animals were treated humanely during the shoot.

Ms Newell said: 'Each of the animals came with their trainers and every second they were observed and watched whenever the models came in contact with the animals.

'Some like Susie the elephant were fine to work with, the only problem she posed was how to get the model Kaela on top.

'In the end we used a long ladder and then we set about photographing inside the mammoth studios.

'For another model, Jasmina, and the cheetah and tigers it was bit different.

'We had to make sure that they were comfortable around her and that she had ample time to make a getaway should they become uncomfortable.'

But the fun project had a serious side as it is meant to remind viewers that man is an animal himself.

'I think that we forget our origins as animals ourselves,' Ms Newell said. 'We need to reconnect with nature and we should be closer to the animals that live on this world.

'We should look on these pictures as something more natural and not as odd as they might first seem.

'I used to fantasise about being the animals that my father used to treat and now with this project I am a little closer.'

Working with 75lb snakes and playful tigers proved difficult for the thin female models.

Ms Newell said: 'The tigers just wanted to play, but with their claws and the fact that Jasmina was naked, it was a problem for her obviously.

'But that aside, the cats were watched at all times and everyone had a great time during the shoot.'
