nanoq: flat out and bluesome

Nanoq: flat out and bluesome, 2002-2004, by Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir and Mark Wilson.

I really like this project by Snæbjörnsdóttir and Wilson. The beautiful and strange photographs of taxidermied bears amongst random artifacts or artificial settings evoke various feelings, and question man’s show of power through trophy hunting. Instead of reminding us of vast and wild nature, these beautiful large creatures, put out of context, are somehow both incomprehensible and pitiful-looking.
