The Naturalist

Grappling with the complexities of existence across different hemispheres, I am continually drawn to the contrasting yet complementary landscapes of the sea and the forest.

Through this series of hand-colored photographs, cyanotype and salt prints, and objects, I explore the profound interconnectedness of humanity, nature, and the vast expanse of the universe.

The sea and the forest serve as backdrops for an introspective journey, each representing distinct realms of existence.

This project seeks to capture this tension—the juxtaposition of stillness and movement, chaos and serenity, belonging and displacement.
