Item description for The Visitors by Charlotte Cory...
Charlotte Cory's images rework cartes de visite, the photographic visiting cards that were a Victorian craze. The faces may now be forgotten, but in their place Cory adds the heads of animals-stuffed animals preserved for posterity in museums. The "visitors" are truly creatures of fantasy-each so delicately posed that we think, Can that be real? A noble tiger dressed in imperial regalia, a haughty kangaroo with a cricket bat. What kind of extraordinary creatures are these?
In addition to her photographic work, Charlotte Cory is an established novelist, journalist, and travel writer.
