Insects are essential for the functioning of our ecosystem. About 25 per cent of the insects in Germany are on the Red List of endangered species. This threat must be made heard. The photo series “The little things that run the world” visualizes insect extinction in the context of the digital world. The shooting itself was almost symbolic. Breathing was denied, speaking was impossible. The analogue mask is reminiscent of face filters that are currently enjoying an enormous hype. However, such attention would be appropriate for insect deaths.
