Richard Barnes

Richard Barnes, Animal Logic I used to live near this amazing taxidermist's shop in London called Get Stuffed. When I say amazing, I mean it: on top of cats, dogs, badgers, and a couple of penguins, they had a polar bear in the window. A while further back, during my student years, I made a few trips to Dublin's decrepit Natural History Museum to see creatures with an ear clinging on to their head with a piece of masking tape, or with their skin stapled back together to keep their insides from pouring out.

Richard Barnes' Animal Logic series reminds me of those times.
