A catalog of works by Donald Farnsworth exhibited at the Fresno Art Museum. Farnsworth's large scale prints on paper and canvas combine extraordinarily detailed, hyper-realistic images of specimens from the natural world with text from Charles Darwin's Origin of Species, inviting the viewer to consider the dual roles of observation and belief in humanity's understanding of its own origins. Includes an essay by Nick Stone and a foreword by the artist.
