Julian Harriman-Dickinson: Dead Pheasants

It’s not often that dead animals can be described as beautiful. Butcher’s counters aren’t renowned for their aesthetic allure and even the best taxidermy is frequently unnerving (something about those cold dead eyes). But Julian Harriman-Dickinson of Harriman Steel has created a body of work that defies this contention, taking a brace of dead pheasants and creating some truly striking visual imagery. Using the fruits of a friend’s hunting trip and a simple flatbed scanner, Julian set about immortalising these poor ex-birds and their beautiful plumage with absolutely stunning results.
