Dark Zoo - Animal Photography of Nicolas Evariste

Nicolas Evariste is a young photographic artist hailing from Granville in the Normandy section of France. Some of his favorite subjects are landscapes near his home, and small objects portrayed on a large scale, but his animal photography ... is truly magnificent to behold!

Evariste's "Dark Zoo" series focuses on using dynamic black and white photography, enhanced by a square format. This creates a simplicity that contrasts and complements the incredible subjects of his pictures. Do the animal images below look as though they are the same size to you?
