Complete Diagnosis and Repair

Artist Statement
The photographic series, Complete Diagnosis and Repair highlights the presence of humans in nature and the mark they leave behind. It is comprised of five chapters capturing different elements of the natural or manmade landscape. This collection of silver gelatin prints is altered through bleaching and scratching the surface of the print, as well as the etching of the negative. The different methods of manipulation enhance each individual image to augment the battle between man and nature.  The image and their marks tell a unique story about this complex relationship.
