Dinosaur skeletons captured in stunning detail
Photographer travels to museums across Europe to capture creatures
Dinosaur skeletons have been reanimated in series of pictures by a German photographer.
He covered creatures from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods.
“I sought to really bring these animals to life," he said. ”I have to remind people that these aren't Hollywood images, but rather real animals that lived millions of years ago.“
Mr Voigt travelled to five natural history museums across Europe to photograph the dinosaurs and the skeletons of other extinct creatures.
He said he only used natural light to capture the images and relied on a black back-drop to separate each animal from its neighbour. Sometimes he spent a hour composing each shot.
”I can't touch them, or ask them to move a little to left, so I have to look for the best angle," he said, adding that he was inspired to work with dinosaur skeletons after a visit to the Natural History Museum in London.
He said: ”It all started with wanting to bring these animals out of their glass boxes. In a museum, when you look at certain collections of animals and skeletons, they're always very packed together.”
