DescriptionMy new black and white photography series “Scars” takes a closer look at mans mark on nature through a series of photographs of trees. From ancient times, man has carved into trees and rock as a type of communication and expression. This tradition curiously continues today despite the ability to communicate and express thorough both written and oral form using technology in a global capacity. I feel that man is drawn to the sense of permanency in leaving this kind of tribal mark in nature.
