This series was taken in New York, at the High Line Park using multiple exposures in camera.

Famous for its unique location and adaptive re-use of decaying city structure, this park attracts millions of tourists and city dwellers alike. Why? Why are we drawn to it, why does it capture our imaginations and take our breath away?

By layering the organic life of the park over the hard city scape, it pushes the viewer to see how architectural space is not two dimensional, it is also what we hear, smell, feel and experience. This park is an urban escape; offering separation but not disconnection from the city street and re-connection to the natural world through its highly designed and yet perceptually wild, plant life.
