Klaus Pichler: Skeletons in the Closet

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on December 2, 2011 in Photography
  • Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler has spent the last three years roaming behind the exhibits at Vienna's Museum of Natural History, shooting photos of taxidermied animals. The results, collected in the ongoing series "Skeletons in the Closet," are simultaneously fascinating, grotesque, and hilarious. Writes Pichler:

    It all started when I happened to catch a glimpse through a basement window of the museum of natural history one night: an office with a desk, a computer, shelves and a stuffed antelope. This experience left me wondering: what does a museum look like behind the scenes? How are exhibits stored when they are not on display?
