For three years, photographer Tim Edgar closely observed and documented the epic struggles of the insects that colonised his outside toilet. Insect Theatre reveals a world at once familiar and strange, a world of life-and-death drama laid bare. Stunningly detailed and atmospheric, Edgar’s images provide a meditation on conflict, survival, and transformation.
Anthropomologist Hugh Raffles contributes four short essays provoked by Edgar’s work. Pairing natural science with a philosophical fascination for animals lives, these reflections anchor Edgar’s uniquely personal and absorbing photographs and suggests ways of navigating their darkly beautiful vision.
A provocative and inspiring book for anyone interested in nature, science or photography, Insect Theatre offers a singular perspective on the natural world and the insects that surround us.
