Insect Theatre - Hugh Raffles

INSECT THEATRE

For three years, photographer Tim Edgar closely observed and documented the struggles of the insects that colonized his garden shed. Insect Theatre reveals a world of life-and-death drama, at once familiar and strange. Detailed and atmospheric, Edgar’s images provide a meditation on conflict, survival, and transformation.

Hugh Raffles contributes four short essays provoked by Tim Edgar’s images. Pairing natural science with a philosophical fascination for animal lives, the essays anchor Edgar’s photographs and suggest ways of navigating their darkly beautiful vision.

Brilliant macro photography and great writing.
