  In the ongoing series, Honey Bees, the insects are stripped of their menacing association, and photographed in an empty space suggestive of a scientific illustration. Yet, rather than creating distance between the subject and viewer, the prints elicit a sympathetic engagement with the natural world from which we habitually disassociate ourselves. The postures of the bees draw attention to their individual attempts to turn away from the scrutiny of the viewer. They seem in weary rebellion against the imposition: turning away, prostrating themselves, or giving up.
