ENDLESS FORMS MOST BEAUTIFUL: Evidence of Evolution
Drawing from a new book published by Abrams, N.Y., Susan’s presentation will take you into natural history museum collections that the public rarely sees, sharing her photographs of scientific specimens from the beautiful to the bizarre, which illustrate aspects of Darwin’s theory of the evolution of life.
Susan Middleton is a photographer and author specializing in the portraiture of rare and endangered animals, plants, sites, and cultures for the past 30 years. She was Chair of the Department of Photography at the California Academy of Sciences from 1982 to 1995, where she currently serves as Research Associate. Her most recent book, in collaboration with Mary Ellen Hannibal, is Evidence of Evolution (Abrams 2009). Previous books in collaboration with David Liittschwager include Archipelago and Remains of a Rainbow (National Geographic); Witness and Here Today (Chronicle Books). She has produced films and exhibitions in conjunction with her book projects.
Middleton was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship in 2009, and is the recipient of an Endangered Species Coalition Champion Award for Education and Outreach and a Bay & Paul Foundation Biodiversity Leadership Award. In the fall of 2008 Middleton was invited as a guest artist at Crown Point Press (San Francisco) to create a series of limited edition color photogravures. Middleton’s photographs have been exhibited and published throughout the world, both in fine art and natural history contexts. She lives in San Francisco.
