"There is a distinct eeriness looking at an image from this series by David Ellingsen. The dark glow suspending each subject is as compelling as it is unnatural. How will these photographs be viewed by our descendants and what will remain of these species, or their human viewers? As our planet enters another mass extinction period, only the ninth in its 4.5 billion year history, the photographs in Life: As We’ve Known It respond to this anthropogenic event of unprecedented scale."
