Metamorphosis cover
Four years from start to finish, Metamorphosis explores the extraordinary lives of insects, following their development from egg to adult. Without doubt, simultaneously the most difficult and most rewarding project I have ever done. Of the four years, three were spent watching, waiting and photographing, during which time I had a total of seven days off and could bore everyone for hours with stories of frustration and recalcitrant critters.
