These are fish portraits that are visible emotional expressions in the face of death. They display confusion, defiance, fear, agony, despair. The frozen emotions communicate that these aren’t just a bunch of anonymous sea creatures but individuals that are experiencing last moments in their lives.
These fish are fresh fish seen in a unique seafood market displayed on a spectacular, long wall with neatly arranged stacked fish. Each fish type stacked face-out with layers of ice separating fish upon fish; shad, mullet, perch, catfish in separate stacks.
With these portraits, these are no longer simply fresh fish for sale. These are individuals whose expressions seem nearly human in their last moments of death.
