Visual Exercises: A Series of Diptychs A photography project by Alicja Brodowicz

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker

Alicja Brodowicz is a Polish photographer who has spent the last couple of months working on a project combining parts of the human body with elements of nature in order to emphasize our unique relationship with the natural environment as well as the beauty of the human body

I photograph the human body – the microcosm. Its’ fragments: hair, scars, the texture of the skin, wrinkles. I am interested in individual particularities; I look for distinguishing features and irregularities. Imperfections are my favorites.

I photograph nature – the macrocosm. The surface of water, grass, tree bark, dry leaves. I combine the two images, looking for converging lines, textures, similarities in layout, and analogies in composition between the microcosm and the macrocosm. I look for unity between the human body and nature.

The series of photos is the visual re-enactment of my ever-increasing desire of being close to nature. The older I grow, the more intense this desire is. It is also the expression of my growing concern for the environment and the human impact on it. By combining images of the human body and elements of nature I am trying to show that we are inter-connected and that our separate existence is impossible.
