The Forest is a conscious departure from masculinity & modernity, both in medium & in subject matter. My subjects are my contemporaries. We are nude, but it is an unselfconscious & primordial nudity, reclaimed from the male gaze & with a softness & intimacy to the images rarely captured in a male lens. We are in nature & a part of it; we aren’t conquerors of the natural world, we are skyclad witches & exultant earth goddesses in communion with nature, vulnerable yet unafraid. We are willing collaborators & active participants, captured with the ritual alchemy of analogue photography.
