The Falling Bee Series is part of a larger and ongoing investigation into the death of bees and other pollinating insects.
During a residency at my local city farm last summer I explored the collapse of their honeybee colony. These images are the result of this time of close examination and contemplation.
For this image I arranged and scanned a dead honeybee found in the beehives of Freightliners City Farm.
In order to emphasise the threat to bees I created an otherworldly appearance by cross-processing the image.
