Midweek Muse – Tamany Baker

Tamany Baker creates tiny funerary shrines and documents the macabre ‘gifts’ her beloved cat leaves for her in this morbidly charming photographic series Living with Wolfie. I’m absolutely smitten with these rodent memorials and I love Tamany’s synopsis for the series:

“At first, I experienced some kind of horror: these dead creatures waiting for me in different parts of my house. Then I looked at Wolfie and tried to understand the instincts which brought them there…. It may also be a way of acknowledging certain destructive behaviours within myself, as I become Wolfie’s accomplice in playing with the dead animals.”
