Metamorphosis

March 14, 2014

Gabby Wild inhabits a fierce, rugged environment: the fashion jungle. The supermodel, animal activist, and Cornell University veterinary student combines her passions for high fashion and wildlife to benefit conservation and research around the world. Her work includes modeling species-inspired outfits and producing eco-couture fashion shows at universities and zoos around the country.

The photo series Metamorphosis, by photographer and Amphibian Survival Alliance conservation officer Robin Moore, draws attention to rare, less charismatic, and uniquely beautiful species. The series took first place in the natural world portfolio category at FotoWeekDC in 2012.
