The theme of death in its biological dimension is tackled in the work Death of a Butterfly Keeper. A wander around the green landscape of early summer (with cornflowers in bloom) is interrupted, like the walk with the lover in Baudelaire’s poem, by a shocking discovery. The camera insists on demonstrating it, so we lean over, still finding it difficult to believe that what we see is really happening.
