Sauvie Island Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) is from my Field Guide fine art series, which examines our need to interfere with and improve upon
the natural world. I modeled every set in this series after Victorian-era taxidermy displays. After developing a concept for each animal, I created
a custom apparatus for it from antique machine parts and vintage technology. The whole series was shot on four-by-five C-41 film and printed as 20-by-24 C-prints.
