Nature has always been readily available to me to photograph and has been a base for me to develop my aesthetic and mood in my images. I am drawn to the textures in nature, the way the light falls over it, and its natural beauty – whether it be thriving or decaying, one always leads to the other. This series was shot during a trip to Tasmania, where I was constantly inspired by its cold and beautiful natural landscape.
Nature often finds its way into my work, its decorative, nurturing, and has bought us life. I struggle to create without it; it is so much a part of us that its only natural for me to almost always include it in my work. The love the way its various landscapes react with light to create a variety of moods, I often use this to add deeper layers to my works, using its visual language to reflect inner emotions.
