I found this online and wanted to share:

Anyone care to speculate how the images are created?

Well he obviously sets up the scene carefully and then adds ants.

I imagine many many shots are done and then the best ant positions from each one are put into a composite.

I'm sensing it was more photoshop. The giveaway is the branches. Ant size branches does not have bark like those do. I think make different pictures were taken and the image assembled for those.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

well it IS art photography. the ants are manipulated and staged in a lot of em. Andrey Pavlov does amazing work. he uses real ants but not sure if they are dead, glued or what. some of the pictures the ants really are natural, but the rest are set up.

Those are pretty cool, and as long as he calls it art and doesn't claim that these scenes are actual photographs (though I suppose a few of them might be), I have no problem with it.

Nice work. I'm not too surprised by the people not liking the fact that they're composites, some people just don't appreciate certain types of art.

Amazing work!
But, "The incredible photographs of Andrey Pavlov are not manipulated! (external link)"
I find that VERY hard to believe!
