Beautiful Beasts: The Unseen Life of Oklahoma Spiders and Insects

Oklahoma photographer Thomas Shahan’s exhibit uses homemade equipment and inexpensive lenses to capture a remarkable world of unspeakable beauty and hidden presence. His fantastical large-scale images of mid-western spiders and insects have been featured in Weekly Reader, National Geographic, Wired Magazine, and Popular Photography.

The exhibit presents a series of Shahan’s immense color photographs alongside descriptions of where and how the photographs were made. The exhibit chronicles the photographer’s tireless search for arthropods, a venture that has made him into an outspoken advocate for education about the role they play in our lives. Shahan’s up-close views of Oklahoma spiders and insects promise to forever change how visitors think and feel about these creatures.
