Habitorium 2 is a selection of photographs depicting enigmatic worlds where man and nature collide. Each piece in this series strikes a poetic balance between synthetic and organic deconstruction - exploring the feedback loop between self-domestication and the sublime.

My photographic projects often involve multi-layered interpretations of place. Recently my work has made a study of constructed habitats -- those spaces designed to satisfy both the emotional and bodily needs of its occupant. Views of hotels, zoos, museums, parks, and other human and animal environments, are combined to create new scenes that explore ideas of post-naturalistic photography. More enclosures than landscapes, the works tend to reveal how extremely studied life is. Nature and artifice form inversions throughout the series, adding to the uneasy feeling the spaces we inhabit are for test subjects.
