An interdisciplinary artist, photographer Lynn Alleva Lilley’s recent photobook Deep Time, presents the mysterious life and world of the ancient Atlantic horseshoe crab, Limulus polyphemus. Learning that the oldest fossil relative of the horseshoe crab lived 445 million years ago led her to consider “deep time,” a geological concept relating to the vast amount of time since the earth was formed, approximately 4.5 billion years ago. Join Lynn and former NHI Executive Director Tom Fleischner in a webinar conversation about our human impact on the earth and understanding deep time in the present, and about how science, poetry, and photography go together in her work.
