New England artist and 2009 Guggenheim Fellow Cheryle St. Onge makes large-format photographs about science, observation, and knowledge. Her pictures express the states of learning, looking, and wondering. Of her work, she writes, “When my children find a frog, put it in a mayonnaise bottle and stare, I was reminded that I am still in awe of our natural environment, and in love with the limitless scrutiny that is possible though a photograph. Our wonder at what has been collected and contained in that jar, box, or bag. The collection and process are still part science and part magic.” I quite like these photographs’ examination of the intersection of our fascination with science and childlike curiosity of nature.
