When I stumbled upon UnderBunny’s flicker account I was really touched by what I found. And I am really sad to see that she hasn’t posted since 2005. I wish we could bring her back to post more and to discuss her imagery and her work.
Apparently “underbunny” is a mortician from Greenland who also has an eye for photography. Her landscapes are sublime and reflect her own darker aesthetic but the crown jewels are when she sneaks her camera into her lab and gives us a snapshot of things that Six Feet Under never could. She provides a glimpse into the last moments of life on earth – of things we will never see (considering most of us will be unaware when we arrive in such a place). She is great at answering questions and providing commentary about the shot and her work – and well, what happens to us when we land in the hands of a coroner.
If you have the time, it is worth following her posts. I found it all to be very haunting, very revealing, and it stuck with me for days. It continues to stick with me. Which is why I share it here.
