Her lens focuses down on the individual mutating cell; vaults to aerial views of wildebeest crossing the Mara River; submerges to film “the planet’s largest migration” in the nightly rise and fall of billions of jellyfish. . . .”Migration is part of the restless… self-renewing nature of all life, in creative tension between the fixed and the wandering.”‘ The Independent on Mara’s Crossing.
