Number of the beast

La Bestia, a project by Swen Renault on the Beast of Gévaudan, responsible for a series of deaths between 1764 and 1767 that ‘were said to have been committed by a beast or beasts that had formidable teeth and immense tails according to contemporary eyewitnesses’. Renault’s ‘photographic and historic work take form as a investigation in these almost unchanged landscapes where the Beast sowed terror.’ More images by Renault / great etchings by Menchini Cristiano / illustrations by Ayuko Tanaka / a secret studio micro dwelling by Fernando Abellanas.
