Lynn Alleva Lilley | Deep Time
Monday, October 21, 6:00 PM
Photographer and author Lynn Alleva Lelley presents on her book Deep Time. The photographs in this book were made in Lewes, surrounding beaches and in laboratory using microscopes and emerged from an intense period of learning about the world of the horseshoe crab which unexpectedly became a sort of muse for the author.
Through her poetic way of photographing Alleva Lilley manages to capture the wondrous beauty of our planet and the mystic life of the horseshoe crab in many different ways, resulting in an immersive photo book which references encyclopedias and the illustrative 19th century books on nature. By the confluence of art and science Deep Time ponders our place in time, in evolution and in the whole of all life forms.
