These beautifully composed anatomical collages were created by Argentinean designer and fashion photographer, Juan Gatti. The collection of collages, titled De Ciencias Naturales, uses classic anatomical illustrations surrounded by beautifully layered flora and fauna. This series encompasses some of his lesser known work—Juan is more known for his photography and collaborations with famous Spanish film director, screenwriter, and producer Pedro Almodóvar (Volver, Y tu mamá también, Talk to Her, etc.)

Does anyone know the origin of the anatomical drawings in Juan’s collages?

  1. The use of of anatomical illustration to set a colour palette and the intricate layering is wonderful. Often colour collages can look disjointed, with things juxtapositioned in jarring ways. As a traditional collage artist I tend to curb my enthusiasm for digital collage art because so often it has been used as an easy way out techniquwise, particularly layering and sourcing appropriate imagery. However this is a great example of digital collage pushing the medium to create something cohesive and beautiful.

  2. He uses Atlas of Anatomy and Surgery by Jean Baptiste Marc Bougery for the anatomy, and the birds/plants are illustrations of John James Adubon. The anatomical works are illustrated by Nicolas Henri Jacobs, a former student of Davíd, and are used by a wide array of contemporary anatomical illustrators, most popular being Fernando Vicente.
