Nature Series
1980-1982

My relationship to nature is based on the images I acquired as a child while listening to the Russian fairy tales my parents read to me. In these tales the forest is an enchanted place filled with witches, fairies and other spirits. It is this imaginary landscape I am trying to find and portray from the images in the natural world into which the supernatural seems on the verge of intruding.

At the end of the project I sequenced and titled the sections of images and put together a book. Journey Through Seven Circles describes the walk through the woods as a metaphor for the journey of life.
