ABOUT ALLOTRIART

Our planet is a home to alien creatures of all shapes and sizes ! The smaller, often disregarded ones compete and have to try cohabitate with humans. Our ignorance often causing us to fear and destroy them as the stampede for life domination pursues. The following project is about self education and utilisation of my skills as a photographer to create and exhibit wall art that showcases the beauty of these insects and their homes. Copious hours and many thousands of frames are taken of each subject and then carefully re composited to create one final high resolution image . Each hair and follicle is accounted for and only this amount of extreme attention to detail can do it justice and truly reveal the beauty that lies within just a few microns of measurement. My hope is to pass along some of these amazing findings to others , thereby creating more awareness and compassion. To give a new perspective and insight into their world , as seen  through their eyes . Portraits as well as abstract type textures of their environment in microscopic form. Our acknowledgement of extinction lies mostly within our larger  animal type species. Rarely do we give much thought and attention to our smaller cousins , the threats they face and the very important role they play in keeping us alive. This magnificent beauty lies beneath our eyes and so this project is not about exotic type insects , but the ones we see or should I say “ don't see “ in our everyday lives.
