A Nemophilist Perspective 
This piece is inspired by the work of Aaron Siskind. I took a natural approach to his often urban flat space work, turning natural items like rocks and plants into expansive landscapes or abstract images independent of the original subject. As an avid camper and nature enthusiast, I’ve spent hours upon hours photographing aspects of nature not typically observed by the human eye. Turning my passion for macro images of nature into flat space works brought a new dimension and meaning to the work; it created a new world to explore. It allows every viewer to interpret the natural world in a way deemed appropriate by their own imagination.
