THE TAXIDERMIST'S IMAGINARIUM

In this series I am combining my photographs of zoos and natural history museums with those of contemporary urban settings. The resulting compositions suggest disruptions in space and time and the strange bedfellows these disruptions create.

 

As I add layer upon layer, interweaving elements from the natural world with images from artificial and constructed worlds, animal harbingers materialize in anomalous locations. Stunned to find themselves in alien surroundings – disoriented, mistrustful, even forlorn – they mutely proclaim their vulnerability to today’s threatened ecosystem.
