Swiss Photographer Vicky Althaus Captures Man like Animals

Humans are the only creatures on earth that feel the need to cover themselves up so as to not take on the world naked like their fellow mammals; yet Vicky Althaus explores what it would be like if people were not ashamed of their naked forms. Vicky Althaus has conducted a photo session in a natural history museum. Her subject poses alongside bears, stags and birds in nothing more than her birthday suit.

Hailing from Switzerland and based in Budapest, Hungary, Vicky Althaus might have engaged in a risky primal photo project, but it is also very eye-opening. Beautiful Decay notes, "Offering very little titillation, the model’s nudity mirrors the animals, though the interaction appears off-putting, enhanced by the dimly lit room and drab staging." She is as unnatural as the stuffed animals are.
