There is something oddly epic about this monochrome museum photo series. The set of images look so realistic and wholesome that you’ll have a hard time believing what they really are -- the stuffed animals on display at New York City’s Natural History Museum. 

The surprising and surreal monochrome museum photo series is the brilliant work of Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. His ‘Dioramas’ series will enchant you with its blurry grayscale look that takes on a movie still feel. What makes this series so unique and novel is the fact that Sugimoto was able to turn a typical tourist activity like the NYC Natural History Museum visit into a work of lifelike art.

The fascinating series does such a great job at giving life to the inanimate stuffed animals. Stats for Grayscale Animal Photography Trending: Older & Chilly
