Hajdu Tamas – Caput

Written by Cristian Bassa

“My specialty in veterinary medicine is the diagnostics of prion diseases. The deer that are hunted in my lab’s territorial jurisdiction have samples of their brains tested. I have worked on hundreds of beautiful specimens and as each one lay on my autopsy table, I felt an emptiness, though perhaps not as profoundly as the forest might feel its loss. Initially, I photographed these deer for documentary purposes. One day a hunter posed with a deer’s head and it inspired me to create this series.” – Hajdu Tamas
