When Salem, Oregon-based designer and photographer Christopher Marley was a child, he frolicked across the countryside in search of scampering reptiles and scurrying feet that dove in and out of sight with the blink of an eye. With the passage of years, his affection for the earth and its many inhabitants has deepened, his eye for natural beauty sharpened in his adulthood. Today, his studio is packed full with specimens, mounted and frozen, small and large, vertebrate and invertebrate, animate and inanimate. With Biophilia, Marley expresses his ardor for the wilderness by presenting and photographing these organisms in ways that highlight the brilliance of their design, their lines, color, and form.
