“Insects are a window into the unimaginable. Their biology and behaviors are routinely bizarre and enigmatic to us – they are refreshingly outside the human perspective.”
Catherine Chalmers, interview excerpt.
Chalmers tracks the adventures of a cockroach who wanders through a colorful and dangerous terrarium. Chalmers’ camerawork provides an up-close, intimate view of the insect and amphibian world.
Chalmers documents animals eating other animals. In one series called Pinkies, a litter of newly born mice are devoured by a snake, a frog, and even another mouse. Chalmers provides an unflinching view of the survival instinct.
