Human and Nature

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

Are we connected?


Over time, humans have slowly started to lose their connection with the natural world, people don't spend as much time with nature and they don't appreciate it as much as they should.


The natural world is incredible and should be treated with respect. We need nature to survive, we need the trees the sun the earth and everything else in between. However, nature doesn't need us to survive, it would survive much better if we weren't here at all, if the human race were to suddenly disappear, nature would thrive without us, so we need to stop damaging the natural world because we need it to live.



These are photographs I took that consist of myself, and real butterflies. The butterflies are dead and pinned into position, I placed the butterflies on my face, photographed and then edited the images. the first thing people look at when they meet someone new is often their face, people make eye contact when then communicate with one another. I photographed these butterflies on my face because I knew they would be seen, I chose to edit myself in black and white and leave the butterflies in colour to make them stand out and be the most eye catching part of the images.



The butterflies may be dead but they are still beautiful, and by photographing them this way they are being noticed, rather than decomposing and returning to nature, they are being admired. They are living on through my artwork.
