The Rhizosphere is the thin top layer of soil where many tiny organisms and the roots of plants exist side by side.
As a child I remember digging my fingers into the soil and examining the results – bits of decaying plants, tiny bugs, worms, roots, strangely shaped pieces of I don’t know what (maybe bones). This was a mysterious parallel world to my own. Beautiful and strangely alluring.
Is the butterfly trapped or is it the King of this small world?
The shadows are important, a colourless version of this world.
Here is Rhizosphere backlit.
