About this image

‘Stars, 2014-2015’ explores my desire to find some balance between a relationship with the wild places of my youth and a pervasive sense of disconnectedness from the natural world.
Mature and ancient forest landscapes are interposed with images captured by the Hubble Telescope.  The series considers the fragility of our relationship with the natural world, and the temporal and finite nature of landscape as a human construct.
