Entry Description: I've long been fascinated by the inherent qualities of 'the photograph'. So convincingly can it represent 'what was there' that we can sometimes forget that it is a constructed reality.
Maybe that is why taxidermy intrigues me. It allows a glimpse of something that has long ceased to exist in a way that seems very real. The specimens are beautiful and poignant; a human attempt to immortalise the appearance of something since passed.
'What remains' is a photographic typology looking to explore notions of death, illusion and the enduring human desire to represent, control and preserve the world around us.
