Testimony is a series of still life photographs revolving around the idea of the natural order of life and death. Created using real insects, animals skeletons and other organic matter, these images possess a narrative sense of all creatures returning to the earth following their end. As nature prevails, insects gain more presence and increase in number. Shot with 8x10 color film, the photographs are intended to be presented larger than life.
