    Take a look and see what you think. The article is by Kerri MacDonald. There are links within and one will take you here to see more of Klaus Pichler's work: Anzenberger

    P.S. http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/ is a place worth visiting regularly.

    Some very odd pictures there and I'm not keen on them myself. It doesn't matter where you put them, the animals still look very dead! Perhaps I'm not "arty" enough to fully appreciate them LOL!

    No problem - I found some quite entertaining...and surreal, but of course they are dead.:wink: I have always been fascinated by our Natural History Museum in NYC...my fantasy would have been to work there...but I never acted upon that dream...I could also have enjoyed being an art restorer...dreams gone bye... No matter what that Lens Blog is a very interesting site to keep an eye on...go back and go forward and I can guarantee that you'll find a photographic series that will hit home with you. This one just happened to be on the front page of the online NYTimes site at the time and I thought it was interesting.

    Thanks for taking a look, Christina - and for responding.

    Thanks BB, you are right. I bookmarked the NYT blogs page as there are some very interesting pics to be seen there :) Just viewed the "Fourteen Actors Acting" and thoroughly enjoyed it :biggrin:
