"In his home in rural Montana, photographer and biologist Tim Wheeler ( ) has lined the walls of his living room with shelf after shelf of lichen specimens. He has gathered these samples from his journeys and he meticulous curates his collection, finding only the most photogenic or unique specimens to profile. Using stacked macro photography, his portraits of lichen transform these dull and ubiquitous organisms into marvels of evolution and vibrant landscapes."
