"What is aura? A strange web of time and space, the unique appearance of a distance, however close at hand" (Benjamin)

My images are concerned with the obscure elements in nature which I find in my immediate surroundings; a place where I feel a strong sense of belonging and safety. The influence of this on me and the spiritual connections to the land acknowledge the understanding of an illusory place.

The project is beyond accurate representation; I am concerned with the free flowing unpredictability of the developing imagery and use visual layers during the exposures in order to discover an aura. An aspect of conception was the selection and framing through a reverse image.
