    On February 1, 2008, at 5:00 A.M., a fire ripped through Deyrolle, the venerable Parisian entomology and taxidermy store, in business since 1831. The shop's historic collections of butterflies, rare insects, stuffed animals and minerals went up in smoke, and with them the memories of generations of schoolchildren, dreamers and enthusiasts fascinated by their motionless beauty. Stuffed, mounted and classified, thousands of specimens of a wide range of species conserved by this world-renowned institution were at best singed and at worst reduced to ashes. That which man and science had taken from the natural cycle of life and death and fixed forever for our wide-eyed pleasure was partially brought back to its original destiny--the destruction and disappearance that awaits all creatures. Time would no longer stand still, and nature would resume her rights. This stunning collection of photographs by Martin d'Orgeval captures the animals and insects that survived the disaster in situ, set against a chilling backdrop of charred woodwork and burned cadavers.
