Things Behind Glass

I, like countless others, love going to museums. I can't really explain it, but I love seeing all sorts of things from living, breathing creatures, to bones, dioramas, and specimens. I love the learning and observing that you get to do in these spaces. I am {very slowly} developing a project based on the fascination that humans have with gathering items into special locations, be it a garden, zoo, or museum, for observation. I still have yet to figure out exactly what this project seeks to achieve, or what form it'll take but currently it is photo based; as a trained photographer, so many things for me begin with photographs. 

Here is a suite of images from the vast collections at the California Academy of Sciences, an excellent place to find all sorts of displays, dioramas, and other things to look at.
