Statement of Intent
Crepuscular and Nocturnal Creatures
Rainforest and Cloud Forest are very diverse habitats, which have often been photographed during daylight hours, but few people venture into such places during the hours of darkness.
My Panel shows the life and activity, which is only visible when the sun sets. Nocturnal creatures come to life prowling the forestation, in order to feed, mate and cleanse etc. Diurnal species can also occasionally be discovered during the night. Both diurnal and nocturnal creatures prefer to metamorphose in the dark, as it would be too dangerous to undergo this transformation during the hours of daylight.
I have tried to capture various species from the forest floor to the canopy, from dusk to dawn.
All photographs were taken in the wild, trying to avoid distracting backgrounds and include the use of multiple sources of light.
