Aloe, Anther, Horned Poppy
My favorite things to photograph are things found in nature. I strive to capture the simple beauty of the natural world and like to focus on small details that at first glance may go unnoticed. For this project, I decided to take my camera and a macro lens to the botanical gardens to capture the naturally occurring abstract forms found in nature.
I have been working with themes of white consumption of black suffering in regards to American history. In this work, I wanted to defamiliarize the stage and help viewers understand the ways in which African American people have been put on display.
