I selected the specimens from over seven million in the Florida State Collection of Arthropods, Gainesville, Florida with the guidance of the scientist/curators there. I then transported them to the New York Polaroid 20x24 Studio, where I photographed them and transferred their images to paper. I chose these tiny insects because I was amazed by their exquisite form and wanted to honor these details, impossible to see without magnification.
