Burton Barr Central Library in Phoenix will host an exhibit of photographs by Christopher Colville, titled "Instar," now until Oct. 20 at the library's Central Gallery, 1221 N. Central Ave.

The title of the exhibit refers to the periods between successive molts of a caterpillar, which leave behind marks and scars on its body. In this series of photographs, Colville explores the marks left on the earth by natural events as well as human activity. The images are a selection from a growing body of work that uses the trans formative power of photography to speak to our fears of life, death and regeneration.

Colville has a bachelor's degree in anthropology and photography as well as a master's degree in photography. He is a faculty associate at Arizona State University and an adjunct faculty member at Scottsdale Community College.
