Lost Souls

Author: Herzog Lena
$79.00(AUD)  inc GST

A 'Wunderkammer', or 'cabinet of curiosities', was an encyclopaedic collection of controversial, yet-to-be-defined objects, including Cyclopes, Siamese twins and other infants with fatal genetic disorders. Herzog visited these Renaissance collections, photographing the mysteries they contain. Although for years they have been preserved as scientific specimens, they are profoundly transformed through Herzog's lens into a mirror reflecting human fears. Also included are images of skeletons and bones of various creatures and other unusual objects on display.
