Gold in Nature/Trees, 2nd Place winner in Nature
After intense occurrences in her youth, Iris Hartman reflects her unspeakable reality on nature through photography. She looks with admiration at the natural environment which is, like human, formed in prosperity and adversity. In her visual language, she uses nature as a decor in which trees act as persona with individual characters. By making use of light and artificial interventions, she tries to bring the viewer into her wonder and encourage them to be intimately connected with this resilient environment.
