Cockroaches as Shadow and Metaphor:

“I want to get out of humanness,” Ms. Chalmers said, “to imagine life as a cockroach, to explore the world with long feelers.” Then why not photograph roaches dying the way they really die at human hands: in Roach Motels, in pesticide or under a boot? Why depict them dying by hanging, burning and electrocution? Because, she said, it is only when you show the cockroaches dying the way humans do that humans are drawn into the story.
