Playing with dead insects is something we’d normally deem excusable in children but slightly weird in adults. Not necessarily so when you consider the work of Swedish photographer Magnus Muhr, who takes the carcasses of dead flies, lays them on paper and imbues them with new life through a few strokes of his pencil.
Never has the gap between man and arthropod been smaller, as flies swap six limbs for four, and engage in all kinds of human activities – from peeing and sunbathing to dining and gymnastics.
Photographer Magnus Muhr is 39 and lives in the small Swedish town of Karlsoga. He works as a carer for the mentally ill, but still finds free time and inspiration to be a photographer.
