Creation Date

Spring 2022


We often think of ourselves as creatures of advanced practices. Now, more than ever, humans spend significantly more time indoors compared to our ancestors. Yet humans still feel a distinct connection to the earth. This is known as biophilia, or a person’s innate connection to the outdoors. My image captures primal instinct at its peak. When man is one with nature and gives in to the instinct to be fully in touch with the natural world. The photograph is designed to feel ominous, alluring, and powerful. As we gaze unto this moment, we ourselves can vicariously feel the connection between man and the biosphere.
