This photographic exhibition explores and juxtaposes the idea of humankind’s harmonious existence with nature alongside its inescapable tendency to dominate and master its environment, controlling it for its own needs. While Ellen Mueller concentrates on issues of intrusion upon nature by focusing on manifest destiny through the lens of satire with her photography, David Luke conversely reveals the thoughtful connection between humankind and its environment through photographic diptychs which pair food sources with a complimentary water source. Though different in approach, both artists congruently create a discourse for us, highlighting our differing relationship with Nature.
