This is a photoseries featuring ants as the models. Photographer (and apparent ant-whisperer) Andrey Pavlov uses a macro lens to capture the up close and personal lives of ants. Yes, the shots are staged by Andrey, but these are 100% real ants doin’ their thang. Unlike reality shows. They too are staged, but are 0% real people and doing a producer’s suggestion of a thang that said producer thinks would be funny/entertaining/heartwarming but generally ends up being depressing/enraging/making me wonder why I still live on this planet. Real people don’t make $10,000 for tweeting about a product they’ve never used. The sad thing is, it usually results in a flock of sheep running out and buying said product. Real people like you or I will tweet about a product you genuinely love and the result is no one gives a shit and at least two people unfollow you. And that, my friends, is exactly why I’m selling out. F*** it!
