This series of photographs represents a poetic relationship between the human form and nature. By exploring how the body and the natural environment interact, these images allow for similarities and differences to become apparent to the viewer. Throughout this process of documenting, I have discovered various ways of interpreting the human form within a natural environment, varying from the time of the day and the exposures, yet the subject remains a constant. My subjects interact with their surroundings in a number of ways.
This body of work as a whole does not try to explain these relationships and interactions between these two raw forms, however, it asks the viewer to acknowledge their existence, similarities, and differences. I have printed these photographs by means of non silver processes. I have used a first layer of platinum palladium and then exposed the image for a second time with a layer of cyanotype. The use of two different chemicals allows for very unpredictable, yet beautiful, results. I explore this world in a monochromatic way, as if the human subject is alone in the woods surrounded by only the natural landscape and I would like to emphasize the confinement.
