the current and ongoing photographic series, Native,
Maslen & Mehra research fauna that are, or once were,
indigenous to the country in which they are photographed.
Mirrored sculptures of animals are placed in urban environments
and reflect the man-made structures around them. So far, the
poignant series includes images made in Paris, London and
Berlin in 2006/2007: a Camargue Horse in front of the Louvre,
Paris; a European Wolf and Red Squirrel in the Docklands,
London; Lynx in an abandoned graffiti-covered warehouse in
Berlin...The dynamic images are exhibited in large-scale,
recycled advertising light-boxes from the London Underground
and displayed in a temporarily vacant shop in Seven Dials,
Covent Garden, London.
