How nature affects the picture

Ukraine

We create landscapes, take photos of nature. But what if trees, rivers and plants could be more involved in the process of creating the final portraits of themselves? I soaked films into waters of a river, a swamp, a lake, and a quarry in different places of Ukraine and I added leaves, twigs and sand into these waters. Each film was shot at the same place from where the waters were. I left some printed works in soil and swamps in the territory where I shot them and after a few months I scanned the result.

Nature took a part in creating these works. It is also the effect and the model, the print and the chemical part. Nature can create and destroy, it has amazing colors and it can erase them. It has the power and it can speak.
