The Hypnosis and Inspiration of the Curvilinear

Hypnotic and Inspirational:  what a truly amazing form
We saw this in the New York Times and just had to share.  In his new book “Serpentine,” Mark Laita (Abrams, $50), presents us images of snakes photographed against a dark background that represent a shocking depiction of beauty in Nature. In his prologue Mr. Laita,,” tries to articulate what it is about snakes that spurred him to take on this project: “Attraction and repulsion. Passivity and aggression. Allure and danger. These extreme dichotomies, along with the age-old symbolism connected with snakes, are what first inspired me to produce this series.”
