    MEMENTO MORI by Yun-Fei Tou. Taiwanese public animal shelter portraits. Photographic images allow us to contemplate. Through contemplation we gain an understanding of the uniqueness and nobility of life. Through contemplation we understand how chaotic and disordered the world has become.

    "Memento Mori" ("Remember Your Mortality") by Tou Yun-fei (杜韻飛). A series of portraits of shelter dogs condemned to die, taken hours or even minutes before their death. Each has its own personality. “I know that they, like me, desire love, but most aren’t able to get it,” Tou said. "All that is asked of the viewer is to recognize the common bonds and to honor the resemblances between our lives." http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2012/02/21/2003526016

MEMENTO MORI These images record the last moments of life for some dogs found in public pounds run by governmental agencies in Taiwan. These portraits are taken on the very day in which the animal depicted is about to be put down or mercifully killed. These images are but a small fraction of the total body of work in this ongoing project.
