Poignant photographic portraits of extinct and endangered animals preserved in museums. This free exhibition by Sean Dooley brings to life the stories of our planet’s lost and fading species.

Natural history collections are a physical catalogue of the amazing diversity of nature. They allow scientists to describe and understand species; they also provide a first-hand opportunity for the public to experience the variety of life on our planet.

However, every preserved specimen represents a life lost. The human need to understand, enjoy and benefit from nature must be balanced against the right of other species to the continuation of life. This balance is all too often lost, with human interests taking precedence.

This exhibition portrays specimens of entire species that are losing, or have lost, the fight for survival. Because of their rarity these specimens are important, either as sources of knowledge that can help conserve species or as reminders of what has been lost. These portraits by artist Sean Dooley are intended to document and share their fading beauty.
