This series of images takes as a reference point the 19th century concept of the diorama invented by the French artist and photographer Louise Daguerre. Each tightly composed scene is an assemblage of carefully selected items melded into a playful and curious visual narrative. Taxidermy, natural and found objects appear in ways that suggest a sense of mystery and the unexpected. The images exist as one-of-a-kind wet-plate collodion ferrotypes and ambrotypes (photographs on metal and glass plates). 2015 - 2017.
