Pet Death by Emir Ozsahin

A photographer is taking pictures of dead animals which look like they are happily sleeping to help owners deal with their loss. Emir Ozsahin said when he lost a close friend it made him think about death and ways in which he could use photography to help him and others through a difficult time.

After completing the project he buried the animals himself and says the photographs act as a memorial to the animals that passed. He said: 'By humanising deceased animals and showing them as if they were sleeping, I tried to briefly touch death and create a series of photographs about pushing away the feeling of disappearing before it hits us hard in the face.
