Roll Them Bones
These amazing posed skeleton portraits of Patrick Gries breathe life back into stacks of bones.
Through a combination of careful photography with digital editing, Gries was able to breathe action into 300 of the Paris Museum of Natural History’s skeleton specimens (the bones are his, I added the actual photos to show how freakin’ amazing they are).
All (vertebrate) creatures great and small, no matter their shape, no matter than evolutionary history … they all have bones.
You can see them in the book Evolution by Jean-Baptiste de Panafieu, and check out more at Smithsonian.com.
