For anyone who loves science, animals, museums, or slightly macabre artwork.

Original Photography By Leslie Marie Stair
"Lovely Dead Things"

These are color photographs taken by me and offered as part of a limited edition ACEO collection. This means that I will only be selling 30 of each of the four images in the "Lovely Dead Things" series in the ACEO size. Each photograph will be signed by me and will include the print number on the back. This series represents an ongoing obsession I have with taking photographs inside natural history museums. I try to capture the beauty and vitality of the animal subjects while also including pieces of the artificial, man-made elements of the environment in which the animal is forever frozen. I love animals, museums, and the art of taxidermy but I am always simultaneously fascinated and repelled by these sterile displays of lifeless creatures. These images were taken in Washington, DC at the Natural History Museum there.

The ACEO prints in this series were printed by a professional lab as Chromogenic Photographic Prints or C-Prints from Digital Files. This is a traditional photographic process used by professionals to produce high quality photographic prints.

PLEASE indicate what finish you would like and include this information in the “notes” section when you place your order or I will send you my choice. Limited quantities of each are available and therefore some may sell out. If you have question about surface types just ask me.

FINISH (surface options-please choose one)
Metallic, Glossy, Lustre, or Matte

So, what is ACEO anyway?
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They are also sometimes called ATC (Art Trading Cards). ACEO cards are the size of playing/trading cards (2.5 x 3.5). These miniature works of art are a great way to collect art at an affordable price. The prints can be matted and framed for display on your desk or walls or they can be placed on tiny easels specifically made for art of this size. ACEO prints make super cool and totally unique gifts for friends and family or you can become an art curator yourself. I started a collection of various artists' work in this format for my young daughter. She loves having her own mini art gallery!

Each ACEO print will come in it’s own high quality, archival, resealable Cello sleeve.
These bags are non-porous, super-clear, non-stretching and have a thickness of 1.2mil. There's a flap with an adhesive strip that protects the contents from dust, bugs, moisture, and mildew.

*All ACEO prints come UNMATTED and UNFRAMED*

*THE FIRST IMAGE IS ONLY A SAMPLE-No frame is included*

*Photos shown here are low resolution, your photograph will be printed at a higher resolution*

*Colors in the final image may appear slightly different due to monitor variations*

My images can be printed in almost any size or even in black and white. Just click on the "contact the seller" link at the bottom of this page or on the “Request Custom Order” button on my shop’s home page and I would be happy to create a custom listing for you.
