"The Harp Seals in April" is an interpretative series of photographs derived from the original series of Harp Seals photographs, whereby the essence of those images were reconfigured to metaphorically capture the essence of these creatures during their slaughter in April. The Canadian government in 2012 issued a quota of 400,000 kills for these sea mammals. The hunt began April 12, 2012, just a few weeks after I had traveled to the ice floes to photograph them.
