Animal Kingdom

3 May 2016


Jim Naughten presents his project Animal Kingdom at KK Outlet to tie in with the launch of his new book by the same name. Animal Kingdom, his most recent project, explores Victorian and Edwardian Natural History specimens and skeletons held in museum collections. The images are fascinating when viewed in two dimensions, but are transformed and brought to life through stereoscopy – a technique developed in the 1800s to create the illusion of viewing images in three dimensions.
