Melissa Martinez de la Tapia's Profile
I created my listing to showcase my love of insects. My hope is to change any negative perceptions of these little critters and to create respect and understanding of the importance of their existence. I try to capture their world within each photograph so that it's not just a clinical image of an insect but a glimpse into the beauty of this world that exists right under our noses and usually outside of our view.
Each of my photos represent a special encounter with an individual which will never again be repeated so I am very grateful that I can relive some of these moments through my photography.
I hope that others will find as much joy in my photography as I did while capturing these brief moments in time. :)
