Through the media of photography and video Dierdorff explores physical and psychological encounters between humans and the natural world they inhabit. Specifically, he is interested in the complex relationships with nature that hunting culture has established. Hunting can be the epitome of our oppositional relationship with nature but it can also represent a communion with nature. Dierdorff's most recent work attempts to unravel or deconstruct the codes that prevail within representations employed by hunters, exposing this duality of meaning and intention that lies beneath.
