The Force of Nature series is comprised of mosaics of closely cropped photos of the body layered with found photos of natural disasters. Natural disasters are used as a way of expressing forces out of our control, while body parts express the personal and visceral.

When viewed from a distance, these images are experienced as one thing, and yet another when viewed up close.
