Through the documentation of natural objects, you can realize the history of a landscape. I am exploring the natural transformations a landscape endures by photographing the entities found within them. Plants, rock formations, wood, and the sun’s light all come about through a gradual process outside of human control.
The objects and environments depicted transcend human life. They have been around longer than us and have undergone transformations we are incapable of experiencing. For example, petrified wood was once a tree 200 million years ago; because of oxygen deprivation, the organic materials were unable to decompose and have been replaced with quartz.The textures within these photographs emphasize the lifetime of these environments, and speak to the variability within a landscape.
