A Piece of Dust in the Great Sea of Matter

Seven years ago, while playing roller derby, I sustained an injury that instigated my interest in depictions of the body. As a result, I began researching images of the human figure in the landscape. After wading through historical and contemporary works depicting passive female figures, exposed to the elements and unnaturally posed against landscape backdrops, I set out to make images that critically engage conventional aesthetic associations between women and nature. With members of my community, including fellow artists, colleagues, and former teammates as subjects, I began making photographs of women and gender non-conforming people engaging with the natural world.
