My Early work. I consider these locations my studio! The relationship formed with these exquisite settings provided the backdrop for everything that followed.
I think this is the power of these images, that they connect the viewer to some primordial Edenic time when we did not view ourselves as separate from nature, but inextricably part of it and reliant on it for our life force. They act as a catalyst to some dormant memory somewhere in our DNA and hopefully a harbinger of things to come for humanity, when we will all be able see the sacredness of everything around us, and refrain from damaging the delicate web of life.’ Michael Orchard
