Animal Instincts by Lennette Newell

The photographer in light today is the talented Lennette Newell with her ani-human Photography. 

She created a bizarre exhibit featuring naked models being covered with body paint to look just like wild animals. 

Lennette's daring pictures show models posing covered in paint as zebras, elephants, baboons and cheetahs next to their real life counterparts. 

The San Francisco photographer's display, called "Anti-Human" was devised out of Lennette's childhood desire to become one of the animals her father used to treat as a vet. 

Her strikingly colourful set aims to mark the difference between humans and wild animals.

Here with the model Jasmina painted in snakeskin style print while Daisy the 12ft Burmese phython is wrapped around her.

The same model covers herself in a bronzed light brown paint with black spots while sat behind Tango the beautiful cheetah.

One of her eye-catching pictures shows Jasmina painted in black and white next to a zebra, complete with black and white hair to accurately mimmick the majestic animal.

Another image shows another willing model, Kaela, posing in grey and brown paint, with a trunk painted down the centre of her body to replicate the appearance of Susie the African elephant next to her.

Really striking images, don't you think?

Have a breezy day,
