Robert Peek ‘Animals, dead and living’ are Eccentric

The Robert Peek ‘Animals, dead and living’ is an eerie compilation of morbid portraits of lifeless creatures and critters. This collection is true to its literal name, featuring subject matters of animals either in the present life, or currently partaking in the realm of the afterlife. These photographs are alarming in that they are extreme close-ups of the faces of the animals in heart-wrenching poses. The majority of the photos are done in black and white and maintain an aged and withered appearance.

Despite the fact that these photographs might make your skin want to crawl away and hide, they are an interesting representation of a taboo topic that many try tirelessly to avoid -- death.
