Michael Durham: 1/45,000

June 1, 2006

Wednesday May 31st, 2006 through Saturday July 1st, 2006

Michael Durham’s 1/45,000 series is one-third science with the remaining two-thirds nature and beauty.

Durham uses a laser triggered high-speed camera to photograph a variety of winged insects doing what their bodies are designed to do; fly. The subjects look surreal, almost fake in their stillness. Each insect is photographed to show its natural elegance. “I find their unfurled forms equally beautiful and mysterious”, Durham confesses.

Engineers and scientists helped Michael build the custom camera system that he used to make the images. While the process is interesting the results are even more fascinating for Durham.
