My latest series is about Cabinets of Curiosity. It’s about Man as avid collector and pillager of the Natural World to the detriment of that world, as symbolised by the Dodo.
I have photographed many Natural History museum exhibits and locations and any interesting items that I find on my travels.
The idea of combining them back in the studio seems appropriate as these Cabinets often contained fakes and Jennys (the fabulous creations constructed by combining parts of different creatures).
