Bizarre Photographs Of Animals That Do Not Exist In Real Life

Spanish artist Joan Fontcuberta’s 1987 series ‘Fauna’ is a bizarre look at animals that do not exist in real life. 

The self-described “teller of mistruths” blurs the line between reality and fantasy with strange animal hybrids like unicorn monkeys, legged snakes and mysterious deer-like creatures. 

A collaboration with writer and photographer Pere Formiguera, Fontcuberta derived inspiration from the archives of a fictional zoologist named Dr. Peter Ameisenhaufen, using artefacts and notes to carefully piece together photographic evidence of the existence of these made-up creatures.
