Tuna Hanging By Tail, Heron By a Leg, ROA By a Heart String in Denmark

Out in the open on an old grain silo in Odense Harbor the urban naturalist ROA has just completed two sides of an enormous former grain silo with suspended fowl and finfish. The hanging animals are a reminder of the wildlife and industry this coastal area of Denmark has been known for historically.

“The harbor is being converted to a residential area,” says photographer Nicolai Frank, who shares with us these images of the 47 meter high murals. “The building will stay up though as a landmark to remember old industrial times and the main building currently houses temporary exhibitions and music festivals.”

For ROA it is another opportunity, perhaps his largest ever, to draw attention to the often marginalized species we live with, depend on, exploit, and at times celebrate. Here in plain black and white at a scale that can be seen for great distance he reminds viewers of the fish that is now being endangered by commercial over-fishing worldwide as well as a the heralded heron, one of which he saw by a small pond in a park nearby.
