Animal instincts: Photographer's exhibit sees naked models painted to look uncannily like wild creatures

Black and white: Photographer Lennette captures a model painted with stripes to give her a zebra appearance

A photographer has created a bizarre exhibit featuring naked models being covered with body paint to look just like wild animals.

Lennette Newell's daring pictures show models posing covered in paint as zebras, elephants, baboons and cheetahs next to their real life counterparts.

The San Francisco photographer's display, called 'Anti-Human' was devised out of Lennette's childhood desire to become one of the animals her father used to treat as a vet.

Her strikingly colourful set aims to mark the difference between humans and wild animals.

All of Lennette's 'Anti-Human' collection pictures were taken in Los Angeles, California.

One of her eye-catching pictures shows a female model, Jasmina, painted in black and white next to a zebra, complete with black and white hair to accurately mimmick the majestic animal.

Daring: Lennette's picture of a model with an elephant is one of the collection's more provocative images

Another image shows another willing model, Kaela, posing in grey and brown paint, with a trunk painted down the centre of her body to replicate the appearance of Susie the African elephant next to her.

Her collection is completed with model Jasmina painted in snakeskin style print while Daisy the 12ft Burmese phython is wrapped around her.

Meanwhile the same model later covers herself in a bronzed light brown paint with black spots while sat behind Tango the beautiful cheetah.
