19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Bang Bang

In my Botaniscopes series, which focuses on botanical life in nature, particularly plants and trees of the South, I use botanical photography to pair together the exact mirrored reflections of the photos. The new work is a project of imagined images that are simultaneously modern, contemporary, abstract, surreal, and take on a kaleidoscope and/or Rorschach test feel. Through the influence of life, science fiction, and fantasy, I aim to enhance a viewer’s perception of our environment and our relationship with nature.
