Revealing The Human Spirits In Nature, is a series of digital photomontages that explore ways in which new and thought-provoking images can be created through the manipulation of the hidden symmetry in nature, which resembles human forms.

Digital photos were taken of sections of various varieties of trees and grasses. These photos were then loaded into a computer where they were cut and pasted into mirrored images of themselves. This was done by doubling the original photos into various symmetrical forms.

These manipulated images were then examined for evidence of human like facial characteristics. The facial characteristics were often enhanced by adding cutout images of my eyes, and/or by adding color to certain portions of the photos.

The final photomontages are meant to symbolize a close physical and spiritual connection that we as humans have, with the other live forms on the planet earth. It is my hope as an artist that these images might help to suggest alternative ways of thinking about the world around us, and how to interact with it in a more positive and creative way.
