Learning to See

LEARNING TO SEE is a vibrant journey of discovery for both father and son as Jacob documents the work of his father, nature photographer, Robert Oelman. Struggling with a mid-life crisis, Robert leaves his established psychology career in the early 1990s to pursue his real passion of photography. Moving from the U.S. to the rainforests of Colombia, he records and connects with over 15,000 previously undiscovered species of bugs, magnifying the tiniest of creatures in the most spectacular fashion. A beautiful portrait of discovery, connectivity and harmony.
