Photographer Andrew Mcgibbon attempts to challenge society's negative perceptions of snakes with this colorful set of aerial captures. The artist captures a variety of slithering reptiles on a set of paper canvases that are showcased in a vivid and over-saturated color palette.

Each of the canvases is adorned with a carefully positioned snake creature that boasts gorgeous skin patterns and hues. These beautiful creatures are often seen as evil and dangerous by the majority of humans who often fail to look at their beauty and effortless grace.

Andrew Mcgibbon's stunning portrait series captures the organic shapes formed by coiled snakes. These photographs highlight the natural beauty of the misunderstood reptiles that can be attributed to their gorgeously patterned skin.
