Christopher Marley

On our honeymoon last year we stopped by the gallery in Prairie Edge Art Gallerie in South Dakota. A few of Marley’s insect pieces were on display and we were fascinated. Each piece is a small collection of real, exotic insects. Pheromone shows many of his pieces, along with some additional macro-photography. Often the insects are laid out into a pattern to show wing color gradation or sizing. Other images are show incredibly sharp and clear close-ups of insects so oddly constructed they don’t seem real. All the images are stunning. While Pheromone focuses solely on Marley’s insect work, his online portfolio also contains minerals, sea-life, plants and more. Gorgeous stuff.
