      How is this in any way a ‘horrific’ use of dead birds? It”s funny that your attention is only drawn to the birds but if you pay more attention to the images, you will notice that have in fact used a number of animals in the shoot like skulls and a snake head. Being a taxidermist myself, i can guarantee you that these animals were found roadkill or deceased by natural causes. Using them for art is our way of respecting the animal’s life and immortalising a beautiful creature. I care about animals just as much as you do, but you really need to broaden your mind a little if you are horrified by these images. After all, the only difference between these animals and the prominent use of leather in the fashion industry is that at least these animals weren’t tortured and kill for the sole purpose of fashion. Get informed before making degrading comments about other people’s Art.

      Oh a more positive note – beautiful shoot! Great use of taxidermy! 😉

        I disagree with the use of animal products and animals for all purposes. I have a degree in Applied Marine Biology. SO, actually, I think I have more respect for animals than someone who thinks its appropriate to stuff them for people to gawp at for a living

      • Wow, getting worked up here. I see a cobra´s head which they are not endangered and they usually give me the jiggles,(good it´s dead, poor woman) except in that photo. Then the bird? who knows, may be it took them 2 days for the thing to end up in that exact position for the photographer to take the picture. Nice pictures though. God Bless.

        Selena, you don’t know me. And art is subjective. I think it’s important that people are free to comment on art, as with any other subject. Your tirade about me not paying attention etc etc is just plain rude.

        I am a professional photographer. I know about photography, it has been my living for 20 years. I am also a conservationist, and believe that animals shouldn’t be exploited, alive or dead.

        That is my opinion. I don’t agree with what you do for a living. But that is your living. Do not insult mine, and I won’t insult yours. Do not insult my intelligence, you have no idea who I am. We all have the right to out own beliefs and the right to exercise free speech.

        In my opinion, no animal should be exploited for human gain.

Your Opinion Is Important!
