Anima

Silenced Souls

“I think I could turn and live with animals, they are
so placid and self-contain’d,
I stand and look at them long and long.
…”
Walt Whitman

Long time dead, stuffed and staged, these animals show a character and a certain kind of melancholy. The soul long ago left the body, which, thanks to taxidermy, defies decay. I wanted to portray this remaining dignity, maybe even a bit of indictment.
If we continue to treat our nature, the animals and plants world in such a way we do, maybe such prepared animals and man-created sceneries remain to our descendants…

Reloaded and reshot in June 2019 with a Leica SL.
