This Wild Pop photo series captures the beauty of the wildlife

For French photographer, Guillaume Dutreix his intent was clear: capture the beauty of wildlife animals while in a traditional photo studio.

At first glance, Dutreix's photographs embody the curiosity of the wildlife, all the while maintaining the majestic aura of these willful species. Fittingly titled, "Wild Pop", his use of background colours offer a simplistic, yet vibrant colour palette that offers a balanced contrast of beauty and strength. As Dutreix had told me, "I wanted to bring dead bodies back to "wild" life, in a pop environment to add something very aesthetic, fashionable, and in the same time playful. I was also interested by the ambivalence between the beauty of wild life which is totally unintentional, like Kundera said "beauty by mistake", the way I shot them, very artificial and calculated."

Although, this photo series looks spectacular, the use of stuffed animals, opposed to living ones, take the authenticity away from these photographs. Imagine if the animals were alive and the graceful anatomy of a tiger, or an owl were captured against the background, opposed to a self-imposed portrait shot? If that was the case, it would've been a totally different type of project. That said, real or not, I can't deny that Dutreix's "Wild Pop" series looks stunning and it sure brought the life into their eyes.
