Volume 6 in the Lodima Press Portfolio Book Series

Photographs of praying mantises. A surprise for those who think they know Larry Fink’s photographs.

I found them at home, in the fields and on the sills of each window. . . still life thrusting, going through its cycle. It has been five months on my knees, three hours each day, camera in hand searching for images that allow me entry in a world where I cannot be. . . . I became what I beheld. — Larry Fink
