Exploring the tension between humans awe of nature and our compulsion to manipulate it, this work documents “bio-collectors,” a carnivorous plant fanatic, a couple that keeps hundreds of koi and goldfish, and a species tulip enthusiast.

Fusing stunning photography of the collected beings (including time-lapse sequences and underwater video), thought-provoking commentary, and an atmospheric original score, THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE FINE invites the viewer to at once experience the incredible beauty of these creatures and contemplate the circumstances of their captivity.
