Human Landscape Interaction and Arrangement
2009 - ongoing

This work is a part of my ongoing interest in exploring various realms of human creation and manipulation. In this photographic series I focus on capturing the spaces that are formed by the physical interaction between man-made structures, landscaping and nature. I take specific notice to the static geometric arrangement of each structural element and how external corridors and rooms are arbitrarily created by the proximal alignment of structures. The photographs reveal semi-abstracted domains constructed from banal materials; concrete, wood metal and asphalt.

As I photograph I think about how an individual traversing these spaces is encapsulated and physically restricted by their immediate surroundings. I aim to prompt thought on our own human relationship with these spaces and the omnipresent aesthetic nature of the contemporary constructed landscape.
