Otherworldly. A planet under siege. Our lives seem so important in the moment, but when you see images like this you realize we're just a part of something vast, unexplained, unexplored. I'm inspired by the overwhelmingly interesting and beautiful images of the Hubble telescope. Check it out at http://hubblesite.org/ , then consider the most spectacular and mysterious depths of the cosmos.
The earth, of course, is the mother of all things we humans call nature. The earth's circular shape suggests a completeness and finality; but we know it's never finished, never complete. This series is inspired by the atmosphere and the layering.
