    Exploring the intersection between nature and technology, Andrew Zuckerman presents here a hyperreal portrait of a grizzly bear, standing nearly three metres tall against a stark, white backdrop. What appears at first to be a straightforward photograph of an animal uncovers, on closer investigation, his meticulous image-making process, which combines aesthetic sensibilities with technical innovations. To create this image, Zuckerman first photographed the bear on location in Montana, using his signature white backdrop to remove the animal from its environmental context. Back in his New York City studio, he used advanced imaging technology to add details to the photographic image, resulting in a resolution that surpasses all existing in-camera technology. Lastly, the final image was UV printed directly onto Dibond in 1:1 scale. In addition to multiple books, his immersive investigation of the natural world has been presented in three volumes published by Chronicle: Creature (2007), Bird (2009), and Flower (2012). Works from Creature have been exhibited at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen and the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno.
