With The Art of the Kill, photographer Natalie Arriola makes what’s for dinner a very complicated question.

In her own words:

Whether the photographer captures part of a scene which stands before her or creates her own, she focuses on a single aspect or element of that scene and freezes it in time. This act forces the viewer to look where she might not have looked. In my image, The Art of the Kill, I have attempted to force the viewer to look beyond the ritual art of taking our daily meals. I have attempted to manifest the relationship between the flesh of the creatures we consume and our own flesh.
