This image was taken in a town in the far north of Lapland called Inari. Whilst wondering around the outskirts of the town; which is in fact more of a one road, one cafe type of village; I came across this slightly unnerving sight of freshly cut reindeer skins. I am not sure where they were going or where they had come from, there was no one around and nothing to be seen except an abundance of snow and ice as far as the eye could see.
It was a sad sight to see and yet totally surreal. Like many ugly things, it became strangely fascinating and beautiful in its ugliness.
These reindeer have been transformed and will continue to do so, I only hope their life was well and their death was not in vain.
