This Photo Series Imagines If Animals Treated Us The Way We Treat Them

Brazil-based group, Kolor Art Collective, are known for creative and provocative imagery, often laced with a delightful dose of dark humour, and with their new series, Anti-Human, they do not disappoint!

With Anti-HumanKolor Art Collective addresses how cruelly humans treat animals, which they describe as the “systematic exploitation and extermination of the animal world”.

The latest series, which is a non-profit eco-editorial, is a coproduction between designer Fernando Cozendey, and Franco-Hungarian photographer Pol Kurucz, founder of the Kolor Collective. All animal outfits in the series are part of Fernando Cozendey’s latest collection “Livre” (“Free” in Portuguese).

Speaking to Konbini about the project, Kolor Collective explained:

“This eco-editorial is an immersion into an inverted universe, where the role of abused and abuser are switched: humans are subjected to the exact same horrors that they expose wildlife to as animals take their revenge as executioners.”

The highly theatrical photographs will have you hooked from the first glance, as they make you think about how a simple role-reversal shows our inhumane treatment of wildlife.

And in a weird and slightly sickening way, the images are kinda hilarious, as the models pose with huge (petty AF) smiles as they punish humans using various forms of animal cruelty, from animal testing to taxidermy.
