In the photographer's words: "In my view, this image of Louise Bourgeois' giant bronze spider looming over the National Gallery of Canada represents the juxtaposition of order and chaos, structure and demolition, science and superstition, human enterprise and the natural world… When I took this photo, I had a keen sense of both elation and dread. The Gallery is architecturally beautiful against the Ottawa sky, but the spider has all the power."
