Reclaimed

January 7, 2015 § 1 Comment

Reclaimed is an ongoing series of photographs exploring the idea of life on earth after human beings.
Through photography I feel that this idea has been explored extensively, however I do not feel it has been shown in a true and documented form. Through the introduction of advanced photo manipulation software, past series’s exploring this intriguing concept has frequently been expressed through heavy manipulation of the images, this to me does not show a true representation of what it is that we are exploring as artists.
The images below show nature, unaltered and unedited, reclaiming the land that humans have at some point inhabited, there is no reason to believe that nature will change its habits once humans have finished with the earth and therefore I believe that these images are an accurate representation of what we could expect to see once nature has free reign to reclaim its land. The images may not necessarily be pretty at first glance, but I feel there is a certain beauty in the motion of the earth healing itself, I chose photography as my art medium of choice for the connection and truth that photography holds with it’s subject above any other approach, and through this concept for me, photography shines.

    Arron captures his project with a sense of passion and understand far beyond his years. The photographs depict an unnerving and unsettling view not only of the never ending progression of life, but how we dwindle and neglect resources without regards to what we leave behind and the damage we cause. Some of the images reflecting how haunting mother nature can truly be with its resilience and unbiased force that will go on, even without us.
