Little Creatures (2004–2017)
or just an alibi to kill time.
Photography is used to capture a movement at a specific instant and hopefully, even, at a decisive moment. In these pictures it isn’t the camera, but a fence, a car wheel or any other trap the subject encountered on its way, that caught the subjects at a particular moment. After that, time did its work of decaying and mummifying the creatures. Photography was then used to bring them to the size of a human being, and sometimes more.
The images are 180 cm (5 ft 11 in) or 240 cm (7 ft 10 in) high.
