This collection of noir-ish photographs presents numerous elements of the natural world imperiled by humanity's havoc. Bil Zelman highlights the impacts of non-native and invasive species, the current Holocene Extinction, and the fragile places where man and nature collide. The series consists of images of specimens and landscapes, shot at night, accompanied by researched and in-depth captions, that seem to walk the line between visual evidence and photographic art.
