Caitlin WalshArtist Statement

My series is inspired by the beauty of nature and the visual effects left by humans. Trash is everywhere in nature, so my goal is to make the unnatural hard to ignore. To emphasize the unnatural effects, I increased the saturation of the garbage in my photos to stand out. I want to keep the viewers’ eyes going back to these uncommon objects. I want my viewers to feel like they have to cover the garbage in my photos, thus illustrating how we try to ignore this issue. My goal is to bring awareness to the importance of a clean environment in a different way, by using unnatural objects to highlight the beauty of the natural.
