Photographer, director, and cinematographer, Samuel Bayer, is perhaps best known for directing music videos like Nirvana’s hazy classic, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Transitions, his latest series of exotic butterfly portraits addresses nature’s innate beauty resulting from a caterpillar’s journey through metamorphosis. Working with a large format camera and selective focus, he is able to capture the majestic designs and vibrant colors of each specimen. Seeing the butterfly as a metaphor for human life, Bayer believes that dramatic transitional experiences yield beauty, creativity and achievement.
