This project was born when I met Dr. Richard Lucius, a German parasitologist, in Alaska. A few months later I am in the reserves of the Berlin Museum of Natural History to photograph a selection of bones made with great care by Dr. Peter Bartsch.

The calcium formed in the center of the stars is now in these skeletons, fruits of an incredible and long adaptation. These photos invite us to look towards the Earth and more precisely towards the oceans, to see all the mystery that lies there. The selection includes several endangered species ( :Grand brochet Esox lucius, Requin féroce Odontaspis ferox) of which these calcium structures may be the last traces in a few decades.

Special thanks to Dr. RichardLucius and Dr.Peter Bartsch, for their trust.
