Urban Rooftop Beekeepers

A photographic series of environmental portraits of Urban Rooftop Beekeepers.
From the suburban rooftops of Brooklyn NYC, to the Fairmont Royal York Hotel  in downtown Toronto, each location offering the viewer a look at the beautiful and intimate relationship between each beekeeper and their hard working girls. I am hoping to open peoples eyes to the seriousness of CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) , and why these amazing insects are so important to us.
Honey bee's pollinate up to 40% of North American crops, no bees, no pollination, no food.

In this TED talk Noah Wilson-Rich discusses urban honeybees. And how they seem to be doing better in the city than out on the farm.
