As part of the No Place Like Home exhibition I included this series of found images in a special gallery space within the main gallery. In the context of the main exhibition these images acknowledge part of the brutal existential truth of our existence whilst revealing a tradition in the presentation of dogs and kills by the young men of Townhill equal to the great hunting and still life depictions of art history.  The precise composition of the dogs and game in these found photographs captured on smart phones are proof of an inherited artistic legacy in the presentation of hunting, The documentation of hunting throughout art history is embedded in the collective understanding.
