Metamorphosis is defined as a profound change in form, structure or substance from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism. 'Metamorphosis 1-5' depicts a series of organisms created by exposing and transforming scale of decomposing plant matter to light, through the process of the photogram. My interest in this process stems from its early relation to classification within biology and its reference to early photography when the medium was believed to be a form of magic, witchcraft or alchemy. The work considers the role of the photographic medium as an accurate document depicting reality and invites the viewer to engage with photography's role in visually transforming our understanding of the world.
