Looking at Alex Timmermans’ photography work, a friend writes, “I don’t believe Timmermans was intending to mock Darwinism; yet he does so anyway. The details of the process are all hidden in the grinder.” Another friend observes that ‘The photo technique is a revival of the wet plate collodion process. It was used from the early 1850s and through the Civil War. It was replaced by the gelatin dry plate process in the 1870s.”
A third friend finds that the photo evokes M.C. Escher’s visual essays into unbelievable perspectives, in the sense of several little fish somehow evolving via a meat grinder into one big one (instead of into fish paste).
It would make a great illustration of the theory anyway.
