Photographer and architect Alexander von Reiswitz was born in Spain, but lives and works in Berlin. The works presented below are taken from three of his projects. His unique relationship with the natural world is represented in the photo project "Zoogeltalten", for which he photographed animals at the Berlin Zoo, as well as in the project "Animal Stars", for which he went to animal training schools in Germany.
Using glamorous lighting and medium camera format, he creates animals in the "celebrity light". It is as if he removes the soul of the animal, and not just its appearance.
