Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to present, Biophilia, an inagural exhibition by the photographer Whitney Lewis-Smith.

Using 8 X 10 glass plate negatives, Lewis-Smith documents her highly detailed set constructions exploring the nuanced ways plants, animals, and people interact within the context of contemporary globalization. Having previously worked in ecological fieldwork, her staged tableaus are layered with scientific, historic, and cultural chronicles.

Born in Ottawa, Ontario, in 1985, Whitney Lewis-Smith completed her Diploma in Photography at The School of Photographic Arts, Ottawa, in 2011. She is now based in Mexico City and Jordan River, BC.
