"My belief is that by immersing ourselves in nature we are able to reconnect with our higher or true self, and bring about an awareness of the interconnectedness of all things."
Samye Asher is a British photographer who lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. His otherworldly photographic compositions offer viewers a space to reflect on their connection with nature, in a world increasingly consumed by technology and popular culture.
Asher uses photography as a tool to evoke the stillness that can be felt through experiencing nature and its elements. Assisted by studio lighting that is constructed within his landscapes, Asher creates uncanny scenes that are meeting points between nature and science, the internal and the external, and reality and fantasy.
