Biophilia is the latest project from nature artist Christopher Marley. In the book, Marley conveys his fervor for all the different forms of nature across 212 color plate illustrations. Ranging from insects to birds, plants, and even venturing into aquatic life, Biophilia has a slice of the wild for everyone. Even if you hate the outdoors, it’s impossible to deny the beauty of Marley’s vibrant photographs, mosaics, mandalas, and more.
Marley’s passion for nature stems, oddly enough, from a fear of bugs. Having conquered that fear, however, Marley developed an interest in almost everything relating to nature—be they butterflies or badgers. Check out some of the captivating critters of Biophilia below:
