Andrea Ferrari's photography series 'Wild Window' artistically arranges taxidermic displays. The Italian photographer captures preserved animals from various natural historical museums, allowing us to see the creatures in a new and interesting way. Rather than using the taxidermy for educational purposes, the artist's use of sepia tones, strategic shadow use and unusual angles promote creativity and artistic expression. Instead of lending a hipster filter vibe, the shots manage to bring the deceased animals back to life.

Wild Window, an ongoing project, exhibited by Michael Hoppen Gallery at Paris Photo 2013. The body of work was also compiled into a book, accompanied by Ermanno Cavazzoni's 'A Guide to Fantastic Animals' and a critical text written by Laura Gasparini.
