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.
Muhr’s portfolio ranges from nudes and portraits to landscapes and nature. He regards his dead fly photography as his humorous work.
Some might call it strange, but we just call it a minimalist yet über-imaginative and horribly funny example of the art of recycling.
Don’t you agree this is one fly artist? We just wish we could have been a fly on the wall when he was coming up with this stuff. Sorry. On with the art.
Well, we’ve all been there…
Apparently the conversation above reads something like this:
“Was it good?”
“Mmm… You really succeeded with this, Britta… It tastes like shit!”
Tête à tête
According to one translation:
“Are you bi-sexual?” (bi = bee in Swedish)
Fly in boots
Translation: “It’s the latest craze” (fluga = fly and craze in Swedish)
“Guys, I have to sneeze”
They seem so alive.
Is the moth giving the fly a helping hand to cross the road?
More circus antics? Stilt wearing perhaps?
