Opening in the museum lobby on October 12, will be a selection of photographs by renowned zoologist and photographer Piotr Naskrecki, from his new book, Relics: Travels in Nature's Time Machine. The exhibit presents a time-lapse photographic tour of life that has persisted nearly untouched for hundreds of millions of years. This photographic exhibit will remain on display through June 2012. To compliment this photographic exhibit on Wednesday November 30 at 6:00pm, author Piotr Naskrecki will speak on Relics: Travels in Nature's Time Machine, discussing his travels around the globe photographing creatures or habitats that remain remarkably similar to their earliest manifestations in the fossil record, or "relics."
