The interaction between seen and unseen, high or low, are infinitely intricate regardless of scale.
Seen objects like dust, smoke and water existing within this emptiness are our only visible reference to the largest body on the planet, perhaps therein lies their beauty.
These feeling were born from clouds. When I started shooting I became enthralled by them and their intricate relationship with the atmosphere around them. Mostly, I was shocked that this vastly varied beauty existed in-front of me for decades, with me being mostly unawares of – except for perhaps sunsets on clouds. I began to stubbornly ensure that every photo I took, when applicable, gave ample space for their presence. I spent my time focused on their extremities and the fractalized handshake between the visible and invisible.
