Marz Thompson - A Collection of Connection

The goal of my collection is to form a connection between people and plants. I hope humans will start to see plants as equals who we share this world with. In two of my photos, I took pictures of my little brother, Bug. I attempted to make him resemble the nature surrounding him to represent the equal significance between people and plants. In another of my photos, a plant (cat’s claw to be specific) stands against a fence, and that photo demonstrates a comparison between natural life and human-made objects. When I photographed Bug, he wore my green jacket, which resulted in photos with a green monochromatic color scheme. It was difficult for me to find photos that conveyed the message I wanted them to, and I hope that I chose good photos in the end. I hope my photo collection with help people understand that it is possible to connect with nature.
