Storyline

"Learning To See" explores photography, art, entomology, travel, and the rainforest, and its' message goes deeper than its' visual richness. The film asks what inspires a person to change and why it's important to preserve the natural world that we inhabit. It underscores the fact that we as human beings have a much greater capacity to see and understand our world if we would just open our eyes and see what is in front of us. Written by Anonymous

Courageous personal journey and exceptional photography
4 December 2016 | by williamkrinskySee all my reviews

This documentary centers on one man's exploration of a new way of life and the development of new talents related to natural history and photography. Starting a new life in Colombia and learning to see the magnificent insects that populate the Neotropical rain forests, Oelman developed exceptional abilities as an insect photographer enabling him to share these wonders of nature with others, with the hope of providing an impetus for saving the natural habitats that are home to these creatures before they are destroyed. The film highlights Mr. Oelman's personal journey in finding a new way of life and a new career. The film is filled with exquisite and intriguing photographs of tropical insects.
