The project ‘Element’ was created with the destruction of Mother Nature in mind. Its combination of beauty and natural textures hints to each elements’ damaging effects through man-made and natural causes. Looking at natures beauty, as well as ways it is being destroyed, forces a comparison between the two by combining an influencing form of media with a topic rarely discussed. By doing so, those who view for beauty imagery also see nature and those who view for nature also see beauty.
By merging objects with creative lighting, it enhances the viewer’s ideas about the image and what each element means. Light changes the mood for each element and indicates their downfall as well as a constructed composition; the models imagine the pain our Earth struggles with and shows it through uncomfortable posing and distressed facial expressions.
