This image appeals to me because of the use of focus to create a dramatic representation of this pond. Reminds me of a Monet painting in style and subject.

This team of artists works to create a dialogue of the human and our tie to nature. The interesting juxtaposition and remarkable composition is appealing in both aesthetic and conceptual aspects.

Along the lines of the Parkharrison photo, this image imagines a character within a natural setting. This image instead remarks on isolation rather than an introspective look at a shared environment. The texture of the stark tree limbs affords a detailed view that seems to consume the figure.

This image is spooky and I find it interesting because of the process involved using the large-format 4X5 view camera. The image is out-of-focus and adds to the tension I found apparent within.

This image has a drastic contrast that adds to the concept of the duality of shame and freedom being conveyed. Black censor bars commit the subject to a self-dictated and self-authored censorship.

The subject is a skinned deer head that evokes ideas of elevated disgust. The seamless background makes this object a spectacle to imbibe. A juxtaposition of the divine with the disgusting is a delineation I enjoy.
