These photos comment on the inescapabilty and pervasiveness of culture in nature. As individuals, the fact that we are cultural beings influences our experience with, and representation of, nature in different ways. This series of warped landscape photographs encapsulates the distortedness through which nature is represented within culture, as well as the moulds that we try to form around the natural word to suit cultural needs. The circular images comment on that we are all essentially viewing nature through specific lenses which will effectively influence our positionality as cultural beings. By creating circles from what should conventionally be horizontal landscape photographs a singular observation of each specific landscape is forced onto the viewer of the photographs. Simultaneously, however, the viewer voluntarily tries to make sense of what they are seeing, creating their own meaning of each artwork regardless of the forced view that they are observing.
