Hive Series, 2018

Photographs of Found Object

Hive is a series of photographs that I did of a hornets nest that I recovered from my backyard. I found it fascinatingly beautiful. The way the light catches the honeycomb structures, displays a transparency of this material that is both gorgeous and complex. I am intrigued by the fact that this was built by the collaboration of many bees to have a safe place to lay their eggs and live. And the many niches you find when exploring this hive that resemble something that could exists in the microscopic world.
