My work admiringly studies strangers and insects through means other than direct live observation. The lens of a magnifying glass draws attention to collected insects and the stunning detail of their immaculate designs. While viewing people through technological screens, we can only experience selfies in ways the poster chooses to let us – through precise selection, editing, and ultimately, the filter that is their online persona. Subjects who interest me most are women and femme presenting people who renounce the roles, modesty, and confines that our perceived genders place upon us and the vitally important insects who are just trying to do their jobs without getting stepped on! Have respect and watch your step!
