Form, an experiment with the visual construction of the natural object, challenges our traditional relationship with the natural world and its representation within contemporary photography. Through the abstraction of structure and the consequent implementation of pattern, shape and tone, this work is both a study into organic matter and an exploration into the assembled image itself.
