This image was created to pay homage to Edward O. Wilson (6.10.29-12.26.21) a world-renowned naturalist, passing away last December. The work is filtered through the lenses of the University of Minnesota’s collection of rare plants.

I show how Ed Wilson, in his lifetime, traveled to the specific regional areas that the plant flora is from, to document his scientific finds for Harvard University’s entomology collection.  The images are meant to educate and shed light on plants that are endemic to the specific biome regions, as well as honor the “Ant man” and the connector of all, the developer of “sociobiology” Ed O. Wilson.
