John Gurche

Bryan Root, Homo Naledi and John Gurche
John’s latest sculpture is so new and exciting that we can’t look directly at it. Very hard to photograph.

I was expecting to be buried deep in the credits of a film with lots of other cameramen when I got hired to shoot John Gurche at work in his studio on the reconstruction of the exciting new human ancestor, Homo Naledi, for National Geographic. Imagine my excitement yesterday, when I saw that they edited together my footage into a distinct film to itself! 

See the film on National Geographic’s Website.star

Below is National Geographic’s feature about the discovery of Homo Naledi, which features some of my camerawork as well:
