Behind The Bones

This is a photo from a series taken by Justine Cooper in the scientific collections of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The photo shows Cretaceous bones wrapped in newspaper and tied with string - untouched since their original unearthing 100 years ago. To create the series Cooper had an all access pass - even picking locks in places to get into storage where keys had been misplaced. There is a great interview and some wonderful photos, giving some insight into the work of natural history museums around the world.
