    Poor Cock Robin. Okay, I know it is a starling not a robin but it reminds me of some illustration for the poem about Cock Robin I must have seen many years ago. Death, dust unto dust, are themes that I enjoy working. It is a constant in life—everyone knows that someday all living things die. Including us. I have always shot dead creatures but about a year ago two friends and I were at the ferry landing on the Bolivar side when we found a large number of dead fish and a couple of dolphins. No idea what caused the mass death but I couldn’t resist photographing the creatures. I turned them into a portfolio called Dust Unto Dust. In the artist statement I drew a collation between the gaping mouths of the fish and drawing our own last desperate gasp for air. Since then I have become even more interested in photographing dead creatures. I usually avoid creatures on asphalt because the texture is too strong it fights with the center of interest. Here I think it somewhat works because the colors are harmonious and the starling is naturally speckled like the asphalt.
