Sense of Self
Group Exhibition through Platform Exhibtions.
Through photography, Ashlea delves into the intricate relationship between identity, belonging, and nature. Drawing from her own experience where Ashlea has turned to nature and open spaces to connect back to her internal world, she has used these emotions to capture thought provoking images and explore how our surroundings, particularly the natural world, shape our sense of self.
The photographs showcase the beauty and complexity of nature while also capturing humans seamlessly blending into their environment. Viewers are invited to reflect upon their own experiences and perceptions, contemplating the ways in which our identities are shaped by the world around us.
Where do you go when you feel disconnected? What natural environment do you turn to? Do you prefer the tall trees of the forests or feeling like a floating leaf in the ocean? How is our sense of self soothed in those environments compared to others?
