ABOUT THE WORK
The Mounted Life (2005 -2011) is a series of photographs taken in the storage rooms of 33 Natural History Museums in Europe and the United States. Photographed with a 4 x 5″ camera, existing light and mostly long shutter speeds, the mounted animals are photographed in the way Van Ark found them.
"I was interested in the scenery that was unintentionally created by the museum staff, often very moving, funny and sad at the same time."
