Catherine Chalmers

Catherine Chalmers makes some pretty awesome art videos and photographs using insects and small animals that she grows/raises herself.  She respects and cares about the animals she uses, but understands the laws of nature, and sometimes subjects her "actors" to death.  The above is a link to a video of hers.  I would also suggest looking at her "foodchain" photo series.  Some of the roach photos are pretty hokey, but largely I enjoy her work.

Holy Moly those videos are incredible! Yes. Wow! You know you can probably do some similar super detail macro close ups with thos elittle conon HD cameras. You should try it. The detail gets better than the eye.
