The chicken heels didn't impress me quite as much.
Just preference, though.

Dude, he kills the animals just for the photos.
I think it's pretty fucked up. The pictures look great and are
well composed, but I can't justify killing animals for them.

She's actually a woman from the Soviet Union. This is proof that the Soviets are heartless communists!
I agree with you. I hate this trend of killing animals for art, especially the goldfish in a blender art. Sheesh, I never really knew that killing animals and displaying them as art was... well, art.

No, I meant if the artist grew up under the rule of Stalin, then they might be a little unphased with killing animals, especially pet type animals.. I learned in a history class that people were starving under Stalin's rule and they had to resort to eating family pets.

Well, that's why I'm disturbed that I like the pictures.

Animals die all the time because of me. There are so many spiders at my house that I'm at war with them. Those fuckers have bitten me, too many times while I sleep. Maybe I should start taking pictures of crushed spiders. I also eat meat and don't phase it.

I'm not really sure where to draw the line, though. I don't feel right justifing this as "ok". It kinda reminds me of Bob Flanagan's work, which didn't really involve death, but it was close.
