Rachel has always been interested in photography and nature, so it only seems natural for the two to join together within her work. Her project focuses on the inner most details of the organic world, human and floral alike, noting the similarities between the bumps and grooves of the two whilst celebrating the colours and imperfections that occur over time.
Rachel’s work looks at the delicate ways in which nature replicates itself, whether that be through the veins on a leaf or the colourful patterns on a petal. This idea of repetition can also be seen through the use of three mirrors, a technique created by Alvin Langdon Coburn in 1917 entitled Vortography. Rachel finds that the combination of Nature and the Vortograph allows for a better understanding of the predictablity of nature whilst also emphasising its chaotic behaviour.
