The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

~William Blake

Robert Parke-Harrison collaborates with his wife, Shana to create a group of photographs that invoked a feeling of great loneliness in me. Parke-Harrison is in the photos himself as “Everyman” in a commentary on what we are doing to our earth. The couple use paper negatives and collage to create the sad tales they depict. We see nature being domesticated and controlled. We see nature disappearing with barrenness left behind. At the same time these photos are beautiful, breathtaking, and melancholy.
