The 'Wilder Mann' image series by photographer Charles Fréger captures ambiguous monster imagery based on countless myths regarding the wild creatures.
From disguised furry creatures to blood-thirsty Yeti subjects, these striking outdoor portraits evoke emotion and exude a quiet and eerie air. Making his New York debut, the artist's latest image series opens at The Gallery at Hermès and is the institution's first exhibition in 2013.
'Wilder Mann' by Charles Fréger is curated by Cory Jacobs and encourages one to unleash the beast that lives inside us all. Inspired by English and Slavic literature, this visually striking portrait series embodies legends and brings popular written contexts and make believe monster imagery to life right in front of our eyes.
