Belgian Duo Combines Horror and Taxidermy in Photo Project

I'm a horror nerd so when I find something unique and amazing, I get excited to share it with you guys. I recently came across a piece on about two Belgian artists and their photo project called Wounderland. They call themselves Mothmeister and they're delightfully surreal.

According to Laughing Squid, these talented Antwerpians, "...create wonderfully bizarre portraits in which figures in frightful and surreal costumes pose with taxidermy animals." and "They present the project as a reaction against both 'selfie culture' and the beauty standards of the mass media." Check out a small sampling of their prints below and then follow them on Instagram. If you really dig them, their prints can be purchased from their Etsy shop.
