Ingrid Fur New Small

In recent years, fur has become increasingly taboo as are most animal products in the realm of animal rights, as thanks to internet, people are growingly aware of the plight of animals and the methods used by the various industries.

The concept of this series is to both symbolise and materialise concretely what fur is. In these three pictures, the viewer is attending a funeral. The fur coat is lying on the ground and the reality of what it used to be is rendered concrete. When it is not correct to use fur anymore what should we do? Maybe the answer is to realise what the items of clothing are and to bury them with dignity, so as not to turn a blind eye anymore on what or who they truly are.

The other aspect of the series is concerns the relationship between humans and the fashion industry. All three models who posed in the photographs are people, who were selected for their self-love and self-esteem, are of various genders, nationalities and sexual orientations, abide in no way whatsoever to the fashion industry, whether in weight or style requirements, and have undergone no surgery. They are simply themselves and intend to educate the next generations in such a way, however challenging it may be.

Food disorders are one of the leading cause of mental health issues in the Western world leading to grave physical diseases that can ultimately be fatal, and a big cause is the desire to fit unrealistic standards. The series portrays in each picture two victims of the fashion industry, one of which is finally laid to rest and the other which shows compassion.
