Blight

Much like the museum, photography is a medium that conflates ideas of preservation and ephemerality, extinction and visibility. Josephine Kuperholz uses the photographic process as a form of enquiry.

The images which make up the body of work entitled Blight have been created from photographs of endangered and vulnerable Australian insects. The Museum of Victoria’s Entomology Department allowed me to photograph the insects from their collection. From the silver gelatin photographs, I have created woven hand-coloured images.
