Mothmeiser

Mothmeister is the nonstop morphing alter ego of two artistic soul mates based in Belgium, home of surrealism. Through their eerie, imaginary post-mortem fairy tales they portray a series of masked, grotesque characters – often accompanied by stuffed animals and a variety of curiosa from their private collection. Similar to the Victorian era when dead dear loved ones were photographed as a memento mori for the relatives, Mothmeister immortalizes animals in a weird and wonderful fairytale world. In addition to the numerous eccentric portraits in this book, Mothmeister also reveals a unique look behind the mask. From intriguing adventures in the world’s most abandoned and remote places, to their untamed passion for taxidermy and masks, to fascinating on the road images, exposing their quenchless wanderlust.
