Occasionally I develop a new series of images from recognizing a certain pattern in my photography that is entirely unplanned. A certain subject matter that I keep coming back to. This series, Nature & Man, is one of those.
If you follow my blog or posts to Facebook regularly you can see that I love to shoot architecture, it’s my favorite photographic subject. And most often the images are detail or abstract takes on the buildings or sculptures I shoot.
Recently I’ve noticed a certain pattern of including trees within these shots. I’ve long been fascinated by trees and growing up in a rural area I was constantly surrounded by nature. I find trees to be majestic, strong and comforting all at the same time. Now living in the urban and architecturally profound city of Chicago I have similar feelings towards the towering buildings of this city. They’re equally as majestic and strong, but instead of the comfort I feel in nature, I feel excitement and energy. Both are equally important and maybe shooting the two together is a little like combining my past with my present, showing how the two can coexist.
Here is the most recent shot and below that are a few images that were taken within the last year.
