At first glance, these photographs seem to be portraits of dogs, which they are, but on closer inspection they are not. In each image, there is an aberration, a clue - glass reflections and scratches mark the surface of the image, suggesting to the viewer that what they see is not life-like, but is in fact a taxidermy specimen on display behind glass. This project forms part of my exploration into the relationship between photographic representation and the museum collection.
