“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Mahatma Gandhi
This selection of studio portraits of animal skulls became an ongoing project as I collected, found, and have been gifted these bleached animal remains. I felt there is a sort of reverence in honoring the animal, rather than just discarding the skulls. I want to document the animal and reveal that these are majestic creatures even when close to decay and dust. While ghosts of their former selves, they still represent the importance they share in our world together.
