Tomorrow night! Death Themed Adult Education!

Tomorrow night I will be giving a VERY brief introduction to the world of medical museums as part of a death themed series of lectures at Brooklyn's Union Hall, curated by Adult Education. The lecture will be lavishly illustrated with photographs of medical museums front and back-stage (as seen above) that I have collected over the past 5 years, some from the Anatomical Theatre series and some from later explorations.

Hope to see you there! Full information and line-up here. More on Anatomical Theatre here.

Hi! What is the story relating to the fetal skeletons, topmost photo? What set can I find it in your Flickr set?
Thank you!

Hi Riko

It was in this exhibition:

And lives at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. I saw and photographed it there.

You can buy the catalog (which is SERIOUSLY incredible and has a photo of this tableax) here:
