Conceptual photography project exploring the ideas of creation and evolution of life forms;
The New School, 2016.
This photographic project continues the theme of The Gaian Guardians and illustrates the environment, in which the tribe’s members live. My goal was to create an extraterrestrial out-of-this-world image using only my own photographs of real people and objects. I went to the Museum of Natural History and took pictures of artifacts, meteorites and minerals and then blended them with the photographs of a practicing yogi. With the help of masking and layering effects, I’ve created these images of ancient artifacts that look like they’ve come to Earth from another planet and serve as a commentary on human evolution.
