Christine Fitzgerald

Pigment print on archival natural rag
From wet collodion photographic plate

Edition of 10

"The earth is a tough planet. Everything is in a state of flux. Mass extinctions have occurred before. They are not new. The current ongoing event is different. Unlike previous ones, humans have accelerated the rate of evolution of life on earth. The images from the Threatened series combine the past with the present. The future is unwritten. This photographic series was produced using the nineteenth-century wet plate collodion process in which the hues, tones and serendipitous imperfections generated by the process combine with the subject matter to convey the disturbing present reality of the world’s threatened creatures and the bleak future they face.

"The series contemplates the tension between humans and the natural environment and the brevity of life. The inspiration for this artwork was the novel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Caroll, as well as the explorers and naturalists from the 19th century who gathered specimens from around the globe in order to better understand the world."
- C. Fitzgerald
