seaweed Seaweed has been sustaining generations of people as food and oxygen source. Recently it has been proven to be a valuable agent in sequestering carbon along with its rediscovered high protein benefits in the agro ecology movement. By means of photography, this body of work sets out to represent this vital material and translate its qualities into the photographic image. Removed from it natural environment, an elaborate studio was set up to host these samples. Using minimal digital alterations, this body of work embraced the transformative qualities of natural light to harness the magic of this crucial to life yet fragile material in creating a visual metaphor. The resulting images, like the seaweed itself, are a source of limitless possibilities.
