Brief encounter in Richmond

Tracks of the Stag has always concentrated primarily on red deer, but the smaller fallow deer are also fascinating. On my latest walk I encountered no reds, but these Fallow stags more than made it up for it. They were calm and tolerated cautious approaches, revealing some of their personality in the process, as well as some fine antlers. All photos by Alexei Monroe.

Antler documentary

This Arte film is a very clear and fascinating explanation of the science behind antlers. Highly recommended.

Mario Merz – Untitled (Double Igloo of Porto) at Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, Milan

Until 24th February you have the chance to witness this remarkable work in the cavernous ex-industrial space of the Pirelli Hangar. Originally installed outdoors at Oporto, in its new temporary home it assumes new resonances, with the remarkable industrial structure lending it a newly heroic aspect. All photos by Alexei Monroe.
