Cheryl Medow infuses her hyper-realistic images of wildlife with an acute, visceral energy. Her disciplined eye for detail and evocative use of interlocking her photographs adds an immediacy to natural scenes of wild animals and flora in their habitats.

From the jungles of Kenya to the marshy thickets of the Malibu Lagoon, Medow seeks the textures of the landscape and its diverse creatures, saturating them with layers of color and imagery. With every image we become atuned to the flow of the environment and the creatures within her magical dioramas. We see as the animal sees. We are the observer and observed.

More than shifting our perspectives, Medow’s images are calls to action.

“My work is an opportunity to celebrate these gorgeous, amazing animals and heighten awareness of conservation and our connection to nature.”
