The Galapagos Islands are one of the most unique and significant geographic regions on Earth. Famous for their collection of endemic species, it was the place Charles Darwin's theory of evolution originated. This assemblage of unique wildlife and plant-life is captured by Lynne Deutch in a series of photographs revealing the essence of what makes these islands so special. There is a raw, unfiltered sensation to the landscape, and the species that live there tend to look alien as well. Lynne captures remarkable birds with orange rings around their eyes, indigenous endangered Iguanas, and bizarre hairy cacti that seem straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. What she does so well is catch the Galapagos animals in their most natural state, composing this series like that of a documentarian. Not looking to disturb something for the sake of a photograph, she leaves distance between herself and subject, placing them within the context of landscape and giving the viewer a better understanding of what makes these islands so rare.
