fieryeyed photography: u of c museum of natural history

i’m a big fan of jen altman’s photography so i was thrilled to hear about the grand re-opening of her fieryeyed photography shop on etsy. the shop re-opens today at 12pm EST with a new series of photographs, called “feather & bone“, inspired jen’s visit to the university of colorado museum of natural history last november. jen had the opportunity to hand-select specimens from the university’s zoology collection and found herself immersed in a “spiritual” experience while photographing these pieces. the shop is open now and features 28 of jen’s polaroids printed as fine art archival 8×8 prints, so if you’re looking for something new to add to your home or give as a gift, click here to check out and shop jen’s new collection. thanks, jen!

[please note that all of the specimens shown here were handled and photographed with the permission of the university of colorado museum of natural history]
