What you see is not Photoshoped –  Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova has captured these stunning images with the help of real live animals!
While seemingly dangerous, these shots were made possible with the help of professional animal trainers.

 She often provides a few adorable behind-the-scenes photos showing how the animals are posed by their trainers.

Even without the well-trained animals, her photos possess a rich mysticism and dream-like quality that makes them absolutely enchanting.

She is a photographer that you wouldn’t want to miss. Her work is glorious, I love it.

In an interview here are some of the questions and answers given by Katerina.

Hi Katerina! First things first, we’d love to hear it from you straight — are the animals in your photos real?
KATERINA PLOTNIKOVA:
Of course they are real! The fox, for example, is a real domesticated animal. His name is Adyssey. He has a bit difficult temper, but he is very loved by his owner. All the animals that are in my photo shoots are treated really well. Sometimes, I even think that their owners treat them better than their own kids!

How adorable! Can you tell us more about yourself?
KATERINA:
I was born in a small town near Moscow, where I still live to this day. My life revolves around two things — photography and travel. However, my travel experience is not too extensive. Last year, I travelled all over Russia, from Moscow to a remote Sakhalin. This year, I visited a number of South East Asian countries. My big dream is to travel around the world, and see all the corners of our amazing planet.

If you had to photograph just one place, person, or thing in the world, what would it be?
KATERINA:
That’s a very good question. But I don’t think I have an answer. Every day, I either want or imagine something new, so if you ask me the same question again, I’d answer it differently.

Photographer – Mihaela Noroc

“Beauty means diversity and I travel the world to discover it. From Western Europe to African Tribes, and from Rio de Janeiro to China, I try to capture, in my photos, natural and diverse faces.  In my opinion, beauty means to keep alive your origins and your culture. To be natural, sincere, authentic, particular, not necessary fashion.”

Mihaela Noroc is a  30 years old photographer from Bucharest, Romania. She visited more than 60 countries with backpack and camera.
She meets many diverse people, goes beyond the surface and discovers their sincere and authentic side, to photograph it.
In the last few years she has worked hard, saved some money and started the project of her life: The Atlas of Beauty.

Her goal is to continue for many years and to study beauty in all countries of the globe, if possible, making this Atlas a project known around the world and an inspiration for all women that try to be themselves.
She is doing this as a completely independant project and so any and all support for her is incredibly received with gratitude.

She is an amazing photography and I relish being able to enjoy her work for many years to come.
