For his work on One Cubic Foot, photographer David Liittschwager took a green 12-inch metal frame cube all over the world — such as New York’s deciduous Central Park and the coral reefs of French Polynesian island Moorea — and started recording the rich biodiversity of creatures that inhabited and moved through each cube. A team of biologists and his assistant sorted out the creatures. Over a thousand individual organisms were photographed.
