Reimagining Nature - The Collage Project
Bronze in Nature/Flowers
Erin Derby Photography
Reimagining Nature is a digital photography collage project building wholly new imagery using objects from nature. The results are at once familiar and strikingly unfamiliar. Of the earth yet other worldly. The images are bold, sensual and effervescent with light and color. And always there is a strong sense of the atmospheric. I play with the relationships between the natural forms, in all of their stages and imperfections. It is an exploration of the natural world.
The images are on a large scale of approximately 30"x30". The final images lend themselves to both near and far observations.
I have been a photographer ever since I discovered photography in high school in California. Almost two decades later, and based in Brooklyn, New York, I still love it, yet my work has very much evolved since then. I still love working with film, but most of my commercial work is digital. And I feel very lucky to be able to do this for a living.
