The Zenith Nature project was born from my fascination with nature and technology. It all began when I bought a drone, but I really got a kick out of it during the pandemic, when people were forbidden to cross city limits, not to mention go on trips, for long periods of time. Hovering above the natural parks and marshes that surround the lakes encircling my hometown was, and still is, a way to escape from the ordinary. I used the healing power of photography and my subjective view of nature to counterbalance the loss of control that the pandemic cast upon my life. Upon all lives.
