Anatomy Specimens as Art: "Cabinet of Curiosities" featured in New Scientist

I am pleased to announce that ten of my photographs from James G. Mundie's Cabinet of Curiosities have been prominently featured by eminent magazine New Scientist. They have chosen a range of photographs from various anatomy museums in Europe, including Museum Bleulandinum and Museum Vrolik.

This momentous occasion also provides a perfect opportunity to announce that the Cabinet of Curiosities website is now ready for viewing at The site is still a work in progress, but there is plenty of material there to tuck into.
