Portfolio > Insects of Suriname series, 2011-13

Photographs of staged images : male body parts from magazine become additions to the Insects of Surinam plates from Maria Sibylla Merian. The scene is lit through various containers to create an effect as if they are in a canopy

Maria Sibylla Merian (April 2, 1647 – January 13, 1717) was a naturalist and scientific illustrator who studied plants and insects and made detailed paintings about them. Her detailed observations and documentation of the metamorphosis of the butterfly make her a significant, albeit not well known, contributor to entomology.
