These images are part of a series entitled ‘Emerging, Decaying’ - stilled lives – contemplating the brevity of life, mortality – and the evolution of nature’s only real strategy for immortality – beauty, sex, and the passing of genes to the next generation. The images were taken for an exhibition held in February 2015 at Bett Gallery Hobart Australia.
