Intimate Space is a body of work expressing an understanding of self through a connection with nature, being an instinctive and visceral response to the effect and influence of landscape on the human psyche. Whole and part images of the photographer from past and present are montaged with larger high contrast landscape prints. By physically and metaphorically immersing herself into the natural world the artist creates an intriguing dialogue, evoking feelings of darkness and light, being empowered and powerlessness, knowing and unknowing. The work further explores the dynamic between humans and the natural landscape as two interacting life cycles to give a deeper understanding of the physical, psychological and biological importance of nature in our lives.
