Self Portraits with Arthropods

The zoonotic origin of COVID-19 got us thinking about the ways our lives intertwine with many different (often overlooked) creatures. We ask : What role does photography play in challenging and/or re-enforcing notions of separation between humans and the rest of the natural world? How can images help dissolve perceptual barriers, broaden our understanding of the biosphere?

Object/Subject


All living subjects for this series were mindfully captured and released within 100 feet of our studio in the northern Chihuahuan Desert.
