Dead Animals for Christ @ 06:43 pm

for all you hipsters in NYC who collect trucker caps or deer heads: this posts for you
(it's not so cute when you come from this culture)


So. Twelve years ago my dad bought a cabin in the woods of Michigan ( for those of you who know, it's about the second knuckle on the ring finger )
it's been a Tradition for the family to meet here for Christmas...
i've been up here... but not for christmas in over ten years.

my dad made friends with a taxidermist when he first started spending time up here
-- i counted about 43 dead animals today while i was photographing them....

click on either of these pictures to see more.




my dad bragged about a friend of his who stole this sign from somewhere in the Dakotas.. or Iowa... or Idaho?

Yeah...
I can't tell you how many kids I've seen in Brooklyn who buy stag heads
Totally shocks me
I don't get it
But I come from this culture
There is no allure for me
I'm sure they find it somehow quaint...
The real America
Or
How silly
Or...

And you know Nayland (and many others ) collect hunter's / truckers / sports caps..
