Publisher's Description
Photographs of praying mantises. A surprise for those who think they know Larry Fink’s photographs.

“I found them at home, in the fields and on the sills of each window. . . still life thrusting, going through its cycle. It has been five months on my knees, three hours each day, camera in hand searching for images that allow me entry in a world where I cannot be. . . . I became what I beheld.” — Larry Fink
