Everything's Disconnected by Christine Simpson. "My work is a response to the ongoing and unresolved environmental concerns of the 21st century: the changing weather patterns, disappearing ice, rising sea levels, deforestation, pollution etc. Eco systems have their own natural rhythm. They produce and renew on their own. Unfortunately the natural life cycle has become stressed by profligate human activity, resulting in global imbalance and a lack of connection to the Earth. I am attempting to define the world we live in by contrasting aspects of a disintegrating planet with a reverence for the beauty of all living things.
This current work consists of multiple images that employ both traditional and digital techniques. I work in studio and on location employing skills that have been fine tuned over the years. I then explore at length the photographic potential, using Photoshop, of creating surreal melded images from several different shots into one."
