So recently I've been working with adding materials to the environment and photographing them there. This really started with the potatoes, which were fun but I wasn't really happy with potatoes as a choice of material, they didn't have the meaning that I was looking for. And so I started using materials that could be seen as products of the environment and adding them back into a natural landscape scene. Above are two examples, with paper being the top image and aluminum being the bottom one. This somewhat sculptural way of working has been really interesting and challenging for me and I am going to continue shooting in this way this summer. It will be so nice to be able to spend lots of time outside and not have to worry about freezing my fingers off as I did a few months ago when shooting these images.

I will be away for the next week so I'll resume blogging next Tuesday. Have a good week!
