Life and death are the themes which have always exerted an incredible fascination on human beings. This trilogy, entitled Conserving - which includes 'Conserving Fish', 'Conserving Animals' and 'Conserving Humans' - is a sensitive confrontation with a part of our life that is frequently repressed or treated taboo. Daniel and Geo Fuchs pursue exciting new paths in this photographic work. Their virtuosic use of lighting enables them to breathe new life into specimens, some of which have been conserved in alcohol or formaldehyde for as long as 300 years. The appeal of their photographs derives from the breathtaking beauty of the colours and structures and from a magical expressiveness which invites the viewer to enter hitherto unknown worlds. The images, which recall the enigmatic paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, simultaneously become icons and venerable, reverential objects. For the first time ever, these artistic photographs depict specimens from natural history museums and anatomical collections, many of which have never before been on public display. Daniel and Geo Fuchs rank among the newly discovered stars in the world of contemporary photography. In recent years, they have won international accolades for their projects and exhibitions. The photos in this trilogy are scheduled to be shown at numerous international exhibitions. The photos are especially impressive thanks to the unprecedented brilliance of the colour and the extreme depth of field, which conveys a startlingly three-dimensional impression. International famed photographers Daniel and Geo Fuchs have successfully translated a fascinating theme into a major document in the field of contemporary photography
