A Fragment of Reality
Lens: HD Pentax-DA 1:3.5-5.6 16-85mm ED DC WR Camera: Pentax K-3 II Photo Location: Pederstrup, Denmark ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F6.3

I often walk past the same pig breeders farm - and very often I'm met with dead pigs thrown out, awaiting the truck of DAKA - a destruction facility. By now I've lost count of just how many dead pigs I've seen over the years: Pigs dying in the pigsties are apparently an acceptable byproduct of modern, industrialized farming ... or?

In case you wonder: I make photographs of what seems to be reality. Each photo a fragment ...

Death is the stark reality of raising livestock. Anyone that wants to stay in business does their best to keep it at a minimum. I speak from experience. We ran a small farm operation for a number of years. I do question this persons judgement in having dead animals displayed for all the world to see. Pretty tacky.
