As Rheims started as a photographer of humans, the 1982 project Animal brought a new dimension to her work.  Rheims retained the personal approach, because of which, the photographed dead animals have a humane aura surrounding them. All the animals were photographed close-up, which achieved the paradox of humanity is something that’s neither alive nor human. The idea of alienating from her usual muse came to Rheims when she met a famous French taxidermist Deyrolle, he gave her access to his collection, where she took more than 57 animal portraits. As Rheims won’t venture into color photography until the early ’90s, all of the photographs were taken black and white, giving them a sinister impression.
