The Dryad


Canon 1DS MkIII, 16–32 mm lens

The dryad is a spirit that inhabits the wilderness in ancient mythology. I have explored the classical interdependence between humanity and nature by focusing on the aesthetics of the athletic figure in the landscape. By exploring my local environment I was able to reveal a variety of fragile ecosystems. Through collaboration with my model, with whom I share a love of acrobatic gymnastics, I investigated a dialogue between the forms and textures of the figure and the natural world.
