The Vanishing of Gaia

The Vanishing of Gaia is a contemporary interpretation of the Greek goddess Gaia. In the Olympian creation myth, Gaia is the first goddess to be created from Chaos (nothing) and is the personification of the earth (mother nature). She gave birth to the sky, mountains, and seas and is therefore a symbol of nature in these images. Each image in the series portrays the goddess fading within a nature scene, alluding to climate change and the destruction of nature.

 

In order to capture diverse landscapes, I traveled throughout North America to shoot the series. I was inspired by the selected scenes and feel they encapsulate some of nature’s most beautiful creations.
