Who Told the Birds and the Bees?

Insexts (Do They Do it Also?) An Intimate Exhibition of Insect Photography by David Lowenthal March 17-31, 2012 at Gaya Art Space in Ubud, Bali.


(3/2/2012)

David Lowenthal, a British-born naturalist and environmentalist began diving at the age of 11. Forty years later, he is still diving and remains passionate about the marine environment. A keen underwater photographer dating from the pre-digital era, Lowenthal has held several exhibitions successful exhibition in that genre in London.

In 1990 he formed the 'Fragile World' company dedicated to coral reef conservation and education. He has worked on projects with the Marine Conservation Society, World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Friends of the National Parks (FNPF) and a number of other environmentally committed NGOs.

While he has always had a fascination with insects, it was only in 2002, after moving to Ubud, Bali that he took a deeper interest in the class 'Insecta.'

In the intervening years he has captured the behavior of some of Bali’s smallest and sometimes most rare creatures. His photos portray insects in a completely different light. While many of us see insects only as pests to be eradicated, David takes us inside a secret, passionate and often very caring insect’s world. He shows a male species of fritillary butterfly that seduces females by showering them with 'love dust', a species of stick insect (phasmatodea) that mates non-stop for twelve weeks.

The ‘Insexts’ exhibition is a celebration of the incredible biodiversity found in Bali. With a dramatic increase in the population of the Balinese, mass tourism, habitat destruction, a construction boom, car and motorbike pollution, rampant toxic fogging practices, and a thriving wildlife trade the future of wildlife in Bali is very much in question.

Lowenthal has always had an interest in design and, to him, the natural world offers an almost infinite numbers of shapes, color combinations and pattern to dazzle and inspire.

The ‘Insexts’ exhibition is full of inspiration, harmony and humor.
