Our primary human instincts drive us to control, dominate, nurture, and find a connection to our surroundings. Each photograph in Human/Nature presents the relationship between man and the environment—comparing, for example, a desolate landscape with a similar close-up of the human body. In simple yet profound ways, these images manifest the many ways bodily forms echo forms in nature and drive home the importance of connecting to our habitat in a physical, tangible way.
