Arthur Myerson TAXIDERMY SHOP Corsicana, Texas “My wife, baby daughter and I were walking around the town when I spotted this taxidermy shop. I was totally caught up photographing the exotic animals on display when my wife told me to turn around. That’s when I saw my daughter sleeping in that chair amongst all those heads. Many people see this image as a metaphor for various things.” This photograph is part of the collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
