‘The Mounted Life’
C print 60 x 75 cm, 110 x 130 cm
2005 – 2011
‘The Mounted Life’ (2005 -2011) is a series of photographs taken in the storage rooms of 33 Natural History Museums in Europe and the United States. Photographed with a 4 x 5″ camera, existing light and mostly long shutter speeds, the mounted animals are photographed in the way I’ve found them. I was interested in the scenery that was unintentionally created by the museum staff, often very moving, funny and sad at the same time.
