The Herpetologist, Allen Greer, Principal Research Scientist

Originally I was asked to photograph some of our scientists at their desks or in their labs – a fairly standard request. After some investigation as to how the images were to be used (in an exhibition titled ‘Whodunit’), the concept became self-evident. Drawing heavily from crime novels, CSI dramas and old movie matinees, the portraits developed into a more sinister and interesting result.
