Aesthetically rooted in 19th century taxonomic illustration and natural history dioramas, Creature Wall offers an explicit visual understanding of its subjects, some of which are rare or endangered. Isolating the natural world from its environment, Andrew Zuckerman places his subjects against a stark white background in his signature style.
About Andrew Zuckerman
Andrew Zuckerman conducts immersive investigations of the human relationship with the natural world through the lens of photography, and documentary and conceptual film. His work focuses on living specimens through highly-detailed, decontextualized portraiture that provides unobstructed access to his subjects. His 2008 book, film, and traveling exhibition, Wisdom, featured interviews in his signature style of over 50 individuals over the age of 65 including Nelson Mandela, Jane Goodall, and Ted Kennedy. Zuckerman continued this type of acclaimed, singular subject investigation in his later series, Bird (2009), Music (2010), and Flower (2012).
