The ongoing Fractured Landscapes series confronts our complex and often convoluted relationship to nature and depict instances in which theses forces both compliment each other and collide in destructive ways. The images celebrate man’s desire to build, innovate and create, while acknowledging the fact that our impulse to grow and consume is eroding the ecological framework that we depend on to sustain our wasteful habits. The use of synthetic material reinforces the commentary on man’s impulse to consume, contain and modify the earth’s resources in order to accommodate our own needs and desires.
