Alison Carey

Work from Organic Remains of a Former World.

“Organic Remains of a Former World are contemporary ambrotypes inspired by the invisible past of the Paleozoic era. The images draw from data and illustrations of scientific research, and are shot using clay models submerged in 55-gallon aquariums. Carey photographs her vision of this ancient ocean by combining the forces of scientific study and artistic imagination, in effect animating science and history, while reflecting the subjective, incomplete and ever-shifting nature of both disciplines." - Michael Mazzeo Gallery
