Plants and Plastic

A Visual Exploration of the Interaction of Humans and Nature

Plants are often the only identifiable subjects in the photos, yet they are often obscured behind a translucent material that has been distressed by the elements of nature. The surprising compilation of shapes, texture, and colors often resemble paintings. Yet these beautiful semi-abstractions are bittersweet reminders of the process of aging. Plants continue to leave their mark long after their prime.
