In the fragility of death there is beauty. Confronting the manifestation of death within imagery can bring many discomfort, as it causes them to consider their own mortality. By photographing dead animals in an intimate manner, this body of work reveals the beauty these lifeless bodies posses to show another side to the picture of death.
