About

In the series Growing Light, I draw from both biological sciences and humanities to explore wonders of the natural world and the threats humans pose to them. Using photographic processes that harness the intermittent and fleeting glow of bioluminescent climate change indicators, including algae, bacteria, insects, and fungi, I create imagery meant to evoke a sense of curiosity and wonder in the connections between species.  As a marriage of conceptual photography and scientific exploration, these works provoke discussion about technical possibilities in photography as well as a larger dialogue about climate change, the sixth extinction, and the important and precarious interconnections among all living things.

*Made possible in part by a Research Excellence Grant from Bradley University.
