Florescent Habitats series, 2005-2006
pinhole photographs

These pinhole photographs were taken at the American Museum of Natural History. They are part of a larger series that critiques the naturalized view of nature created in such spaces. The camera zooms out to include the artificial lighting and other infrastructure in what might otherwise look like photographs taken in the wild. They call attention to the intentionality of the taxidermied poses and scenes within the museum.
