Science experiment or decorating scheme? Grissel Giuliano’s Eden’s Trap series proffers deceased vermin in a palette suited to a Victorian parlor. Appropriately, these two dimensional curio cabinets function as macabre testaments not to sweat the small stuff.

In her own words:

The “Eden’s Trap” image series was inspired by my connection with nature and observing the vital role it plays in the cycle of life and death.  The photographs underscore the tragedy of death while revealing an enigmatic beauty that lies within it.  The forthright perspective, cognitive undertones, and connotations of humor are intended to prompt the viewer’s own questions regarding existence.
