Animals Twice Dead - Richard Barnes

The Morning News has a feature on Animals Twice Dead, a collection of great behind-the-scenes photography by Richard Barnes that was recently released by PA Press. It's so odd to see how they transport and construct taxidermy animals in the exhibits at natural history museums. The entire scene seems so artificial, like the constructed feel of the exhibit creeps out into the world of the installers.
