This year, our celebration of Pollinator Week will feature an exhibit of the work of wild-pollinator photographer, Will Peterman. A writer and biologist, Will has been up and down the West Coast looking for America's wild bees, and trying to figure out how to take a bee's eye view of the world. Look for a series of his buzz-worthy photos in our stairwell starting in June!
I’ve spent the past twenty years working with bees. As a writer, photographer, and biologist, I have been up and down the West Coast looking for America’s wild bees, and trying to figure out how to take a bee’s eye view of the world – both figuratively and literally.
Over the years, I’ve learned some interesting things about the differences between a bee’s vision and our own, and I’ve learned to use those differences to bring a touch of fantasia to my work. This project brings my journey full circle: when you look at these photographs, you are seeing our native bees and the flowers they live on with some trace of their reflections in a few extra eyes.
I hope to bring some attention to the beauty and diversity of our wild, native bees and other pollinators.
Bees need dirt!
