“I worked in theatre which was a big help when it came to making props. I chose ants because I respect them and their way of life. They care about their children and look after the elderly.”
Ants Fantasy Photos. The photographs in this picture gallery may look like they been Photoshopped or assembled with dead insects, but the ants in these images are very much alive. Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov spends hours setting up fairytale scenes. He studied ants, and saw that they all follow a very specific path when they’re working. So he put his props on their trail, and photographed the insects interacting with his miniature ‘stage sets’.
