Inspired by a trip to a natural history museum in Rhode Island, photographer Diana Brennan has created a beautiful series of photographs that are part art and part science. Although initially some of the pieces may remind you of scientific illustrations, she has a remarkable way of capturing the depth of the subject in its created environment, don't you think? You are left not only with an impression of the subject, but also of the character of the natural history museum. Well done, I say.
She has a great number of lovely and poetic pieces available through her Etsy store, DS Brennan Photography. I highly recommend a visit.
