Still Life series

.

This series of photography documents found natural and man-made objects in juxtaposition. Each element has a story or contains aspects of the relationship between humans and the natural environment. Combined, the photographs contain complex dialogues about this underlying conceptual idea but also relate to how humans experience the phenomological world through textures, colors, and even sounds related to the objects. With both approaches in mind, the objects are elevated from their ordinary being to the extraordinary and are able to create new dialogues about their simple existence and meanings.
