Barbara Bosworth collects samples of flora and fauna, not in specimen cages and bell jars, but with her large-format view camera. Bosworth’s photographs speak to the interconnectedness between humans, animals, and the environment. Her subdued images mimic the quiet, meandering walks she took as a child growing up in the Chagrin River valley of Ohio. They are about many things but most importantly a deep appreciation for nature.
