L.A. Artist Puts Social Media Obsessed Humans Into Nature Dioramas

Campbell-Prepping For The Kill

Wild Kingdom is the latest series of photos by Los Angeles’ Clayton Campbell, who has photographed the fusty but captivating dioramas at natural history museums around the United States and added humans, addicted to devices and social media into the frame. The artist as anthropologist has a long and varied history, but the effectiveness of Campbell’s technique and the excellence of his staging helps set these images apart. We particularly like the people he’s chosen to add to the photos and how he’s staged their interactions with their virtual environment and not the wild animals around them. Please enjoy this preview of the show that opens at Coagula Curatorial on July 18th.
