Life: As We've Known It
As our planet enters another mass extinction period, only the sixth in its 4.5 billion year history, the photographs in Life: As We’ve Known It respond to this anthropogenic event of unprecedented scale.
These portraits, printed from solarized Polaroid negatives, are not intended as a concise, scientific record but rather a feeling, a fascination, a darkness - a lament for the living planet as we have known it. This rendering seems an accurate metaphor for our times.
Three separate portfolios were produced over 7 years in partnership with Vancouver's Beaty Biodiversity Museum and their curators. This is the last of them and focuses on creatures of the land.
