Some ants grow their own food, just like farmers; other ants build highways that can be seen from the air; and large ant colonies go to war with each other. This exhibition provides a look at life from an ant's point of view through large-format photographs of ants going about their daily business, a cast of an underground ant city, and a live ant colony.
