A collection of toys that Boris killed

Seriously random shit

To honour the memory of the poor unfortunate animals who lost their happy little lives to Boris Yeltsin (our 9-month old Polish Lowland Sheepdog puppy), I decided to do project based around the idea of the Victorian death photograph. This form of death portraiture involved people taking photographs of the dearly departed in a way that made them look like they were alive — dead children were propped up on chairs, surrounded with members of the family or items they liked. Some even went so far as painting fake eyes on their faces. In a time when epidemics scarred Victorian England, these photographs were a way of celebrating the dead and coping with grief.

To the animals who suffered at the paws of The Evil Ball of Fluff,
May they have eternal rest,
May perpetual light shine upon them,
May they rest in peace.

(And to the other animals who are not featured here but suffered none the less,
You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.)
