Terra Cognita

Yasser Aggour

The Hunted (2010-present)

In 2010 Yasser Aggour began collecting photographs of  hunting trophies and the proudly smiling hunters posing with their dead prey. The images had a strange and morbid allure. Rather than presenting them as objets trouvés, Aggour decided to manipulate them digitally, stripping out the hunters. The images of the bodies of the animals,  isolated and contorted, are simultaneously poignant and brutal, a cross between landscape photography, found art, and a memento mori.
