Life in Death: A Photoreflection

by | Jan 9, 2005

 

During a vacation in Brazil, walking along a beach, I saw these remains of fish. In their death, they took on a new life, a transformation that turned them into something else, that made the dead objects into living art forms.

I photographed the dead fish at sunrise and sunset, without any subsequent computer manipulation. For me, they are a reminder of the constant cycle of life.
