Visions of Nature

These images are digitally manipulated using a process that I developed. The pictures reveal nature in stunning colors and provocative visions. My aim in creating these images was to apply Schklovsky’s concept of defamiliarization (Russian: Ostranenie) which posits that the purpose of art is to render the familiar as unfamiliar in order to inspire new ways of seeing, fresh perspectives on the colors, shapes, and patterns of nature. These and other works are collected in the volume, Visions of Nature. ↗️
