Director Statement

“Documenting almost the entire life cycle of an animal is rare, challenging, and lots of fun. Being able to capture something as unique as following the toad’s incredible underwater metamorphosis over the 6-8 weeks has been a passion project from the start.  The guessing game of figuring out the daily routine of the tadpoles required patience, observation and a healthy dose of curiosity in order to “think“ like a tadpole. For me as a photographer I really wanted to document each of those moments to share everything I’ve learnt from observing these fascinating little creatures. “
