David Liittschwager’s longtime passion is to document – in scrupulous images that possess and almost otherworldly beauty – what will be lost in the ongoing extinction of natural habitats and the species that live there. The work is inspired by the question, how much life grows or passes, on land or sea, through one cubic foot of space?
To find out, David Liittschwager and a group of scientists collect and photograph whatever appears in an open green metal frame over the course of a normal day.
This year, the David Brower Center commissioned Liittschwager and his team to document what lives under the Golden Gate Bridge. Their observations determined 2.6 billion organisms entering and leaving the San Francisco Bay through the space of one cubic foot over a 24-hour period. The images in the exhibit provide a sampler of the amazing creatures living in the Bay.
