Klause Pichler is an Austrian photographer (born 1977, Vienna, Austria) who specializes in many things. One of Pichler’s more fascinating (and ongoing) series ventures behind the scenes at various natural history museums around the world to see exactly what kind of, pardon the pun, skeletons they have in their literal closets. The results, I’m sure you’ll agree, are both fascinating and slightly grotesque, depending on your like or dislike of taxidermy. Some of the items photographed are over a century old and many are in storage, waiting to be included in various upcoming exhibits. Take a look for yourself and see what I mean.
