We love macro photography and featured many of them on the site, but we haven’t seen anything like what Andrey Pavlov does with ants.
Andrey Pavlov, a Russian photographer with commendable theatrical background chose a unique way of storytelling combining both the media. He devotedly studied the lives of ants, and planted histrionic props on their trails. There he photographed them live as if in a drama or movie. The photographs in this picture gallery may look like they been Photoshopped or assembled with dead insects, but the ants in these images are very much alive. Except for the planned stage settings, all the rest is natural; no photo editing gimmicks involved, vouches the photographer. It’s kind of hard to believe anyone can train ants to pose for the camera like his subjects seem to do. But the truth is, the Russian photographer has indeed found a way to do just that. Every year he spends a few months on this hobby of choreographing photo shoots with red ants creating and enjoying his own fairy tales, compensating for a childhood deprived of fairy tales.
