17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Tears of Constraint

I wanted to experiment with man and nature, and create a story in which man and nature have a relationship that is challenged by manipulation, lies, defeat, happiness, and realization, similar to a relationship between two humans. The chain in the image is used for rainwater to control roof runoff. The image is supposed to convey a feeling of exhaustion from a toxic relationship.
