Baby Monkeys who want to keep up with their older siblings must learn to let go – literally! A Geoffroy’s Spider Monkey born on October 20 at Switzerland’s Zoo Basel will soon be leaping like a daredevil, but still takes refuge in mom’s arms.
Transparent roses(2012) - from the glass collection of london-based photographer alexander james
"… a collection of photographs born from a process that naturally removes all the pigment from the capillaries in rose petals, developed specially by the artist. james is well known for his underwater imagery, with this latest series involving a complex technique that over time replaces the flower’s coloring with highly purified water, leaving behind only the skeletal fibre and plant structure visible - all while the plant still lives and grows. the striking imagery immortalizes the ethereal billowing blooms underwater without the use of post production the gossamer forms alluding to the richness and fragility of life through the language of nature.”
