Olly Olly Oxen Free

The photos in this series are an exercise in examining the relationship between manmade objects and the natural world. I am particularly interested in physical guides and representations of things that are ephemeral or too large to see with your bare eyes. The photographs pair things that are fleeting and long-lasting, sentimental and utilitarian, large and small, in an attempt to reconcile one’s place within the universe.
