Photographer turns cicadas into portrait subjects

A cicada is posed in an Olympic weightlifting scene. The appearance of the insects known as Brood X, or Brood 10, along the eastern United States after a 17-year hiatus has inspired Virginia professional portrait photographer Oxana Ware to create small-scale art installations, placing the ubiquitous bugs in novel and unexpected settings.

Cicadas are posed in a band scene. "I've been missing live music so much so I decided to do a cicada rock band," she said, setting up the scene with miniature musical instruments. "This guy is trying to play the guitar ... The bass has been a hard position to fill."

A cicada is posed in an Olympic pole vaulting scene. Ware collects the cicadas in her yard and places them in dollhouse-sized settings she has made to showcase them. Predictably, the bugs are far from cooperative and it usually takes some time before she can photograph an insect in a simulated barbell press.

A cicada is posed in an Olympic archery scene. What started as a light-hearted way to memorialize the cicadas has helped children become unafraid of the cicadas, Ware says. "I've got a lot of thanks," she said. "A lot of kids that were very weary of these things are now not scared of them anymore, and the 'clothing line' cicada putting on a dress is the reason for that. Kids really enjoyed that."
