FOSSILS SKULLS AND BONES
These fossils, skulls and bones – not connected by tendons, muscles and tissues – no longer linger to prey on the likes of you and me, except in imagination and nightmares. I was fascinated by the size and variety of these past inhabitants of earth and wandered through their presence photographing their anthropological remains with a view to reanimating them into alternative present day environments I have visited and photographed over the course of two years. You can see the book on ISSUU.
