While many people are creeped out by insects, Sally Gall finds them fascinating. Her series Crawl examines the complexities of nature on a small scale, magnifying the importance of these tiny creatures.

"Crawl is the beginning of my ongoing investigation into a part of our landscape we, as upright creatures, rarely take the time to think about," Gall says. "Infants know this world for a time. Picnickers and soldiers glimpse it. There is no more dynamic stage of life and death on earth than the first few inches above its surface. This is where prairies and forests are born. Here is where the bulk of our food comes from, and where all terrestrial creatures return when we die. Comforting, beautiful, frightening, strange—this is the terrestrial world. And it can only be discovered and known intimately on hands and knees."
