Nature / Nurture by Jennifer Shaw

Issue 23

These studies focus on minute elements of the landscape, both tame and wild, and its creatures, both living and in repose. Working with a modified plastic camera, I shoot these images from the hip, honing in on details, textures and light. These intimate depictions of flora and fauna serve as a personal catalog of natural wonders.

Jennifer Shaw is a New Orleans, Louisiana based artist.
