Paper Trail: Twelve Endangered Species of the Southwest

For better or worse, only a small fraction of life-forms threatened by human activity have been given "official status" in our society's voluminous written record. For this series we ask: How are plants and animals portrayed (or ignored) on paper? How do documents affect their survival? How do printed words shape and express our understanding of endangered species?


These cyanotypes were made in collaboration with master papel picado artist Catalina Delgado Trunk. View more of her work at Calaca-arts.com .
