Demeter is the mother goddess of manic depressive illness or bipolar disorder, representing the cyclical nature of life and death, of summer and winter, but always of hope that there will be a return to life.
In Buddhism, the cyclical nature of death and rebirth, death does not bring an end to suffering. It also says nothing is permanent. No form endures forever.
Examining dead creatures through the camera allows for a slight shift in reality. Arriving moments after some have passed, and others days after their fatal impact. The act of photographing them is gruesome and healing. Memorialized in a slick dye infused aluminum sheet. In nature the corpse becomes food for other creatures and new life thrives and the cycle begins again.
