Daniel Shipp: Botanical Inquiry

A series of photographic studies that depict familiar but fictional environments

Botanical Inquiry is a series of photographic studies that depict familiar but fictional environments.

In these compositions the physical characteristics of the unremarkable plants I have collected from suburban streets become narrative elements which, when staged against the backdrop of common urban environments, question the contentious relationship between humans and nature.

This relationship is reflected in the real / unreal qualities of the images, achieved in some part by manipulating the optical and staging properties of photography with a device that I have constructed that allows me to create the images “in camera” without relying on digital compositing techniques.

The ambiguous point of view conjured by the images is designed to be as unsettling as it is seductive.
