Ugly insects get ready for their close-ups after COVID-19 inspires photographer Joel Sartore to focus on the bugs in his own backyard. Joel Sartore has been called a "Modern Noah," for his work on the Photo Ark, his photography project with a simple mission: "to get people to care that we could lose half of all species by the turn of the next century." He photographs animals on simple backgrounds, highlighting their power, their beauty, and often their cuteness. But what about the ugly ones? In particular, the bugs? Can his photography save them, too?
