Natural Perceptions

The series Natural Perceptions challenges human decision making in developing conclusions from given visual stimuli. 

What the eye sees is not always real. The perceptions of truth we develop can easily become devoid of reality. Truth, knowledge and belief have become blurred notions of everyday life. In a digital age of social media and news outlets with camouflaged political bias, separating fact from fiction has never held more importance. Living within in a global culture of untruths and misinformation, decision making based on critical analysis of information presented is becoming a forgotten skill. 

This collection of photographs allows the viewer to negotiate a discourse surrounding the conclusions they may impulsively make and to perhaps see beyond what is initially presented.
