Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikov manages to create these stunning contrasting photos using no image manipulation whatsoever. The majestic scenes she conjures are created with the aid of professional animal trainers to pose the otherwise dangerous creatures with the seemingly fragile models. Whatever your opinion of animal training it can not be denied that the result is magnificent, and Katerina throws in a few shots of her animal trainers behind the scenes so you can get a feel for how these animals are treated and their poses teased out of them. Check out the rest of the shots at Katerina's website here or on her Facebook page.
