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. Together these combined images explore themes of chaos and control, love and loss, inner turmoil and outer calm, exposure and concealment. When viewed from a distance, these images are experienced as one thing, and yet another when viewed up close.
