SELCOUTH

Selcouth; Unfamiliar, unusual, strange and yet marvelous.

The aim of this project is to raise questions about the compatibility and discord between nature and culture by placing civilized man in the uncivilized. This will also raise the question ‘What is civilization’?  With this work I am proposing the beginning argument that civilization is the escape from nature. I chose to pose my subjects nude to show the vulnerability of humans in this context. By stripping the clothing from my subjects it also strips away the layers of protection from the rocks, twigs and things that can harm, this further strips away the ideas of culture and the security that civilization creates.
