    Audrey Corregan: Obviously

Audrey Corregan photographs the backs of birds' heads. Genius.

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Not by any means the newest project on the scene (this collection was exhibited in 2008) but nevertheless entirely worthy of merit, especially on a Friday afternoon. Perceptive, conceptual photographer Audrey Corregan chose to photograph majestic, stuffed birds from behind; perhaps in an attempt to get to the bottom of the issues of taxidermy and the transition from living animal to anonymous object. The nature of these beautiful photographs transforms the taxidermic birds into merely pleasing patterns and shapes, now unrecognisable as beasts and curiously challenging aesthetically.
