Ferry van Tongeren and Jaap Sinke on taxidermy
In the seventh episode of the Justyna Green podcast, I speak to Ferry van Tongeren and Jaap Sinke, co-founders of Fine Taxidermy. While initially I declined this interview opportunity, concerned about animal suffering, I was quickly convinced that not only what Ferry and Jaap do is ethical but it also celebrates the beauty and nature of the animals they're working with - that's thanks to their 17th-century Dutch masters' inspirations and previous careers in art direction. And if you've ever wondered how to stuff flamingo's neck, this episode is just for you.
