Description

The contrasting qualities of snakes—their allure & danger, passivity & aggression—have captivated the imagination for thousands of years. A new exhibit captures these extremes—and extreme beauty—of some of the world’s deadliest snakes.

Fine-arts photographer Mark Laita spent more than a year in Central America photographing rare & dangerous pythons, pit vipers, coral snakes & other serpents in the care of collectors, breeders, zoos & venom laboratories. A dozen of his stunning photographs, so vivid they look like three-dimensional sculptures, are featured in Serpentine, on view in the Art of Science Gallery.
