Myth is a series of unique photographic prints, made using found organic matter and various darkroom techniques. It explores interconnectivity, and is a meditation on the mysterious processes and phenomena that have formed the foundations of life and the very fabric of our existence. In a way, it is also a personal search for a sense of belonging.”
