Finding unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed, contemporary photographer Rosamond Purcell has developed a body of work that has garnered international acclaim. This in-depth portrait details Purcell’s fascination with the natural world – from a mastodon tooth to a hydrocephalic skull – offering insight into her unique way of recontextualizing objects, both ordinary and strange, into sometimes disturbing but always breathtaking imagery.
AN ART THAT NATURE MAKES premiered at the DOC NYC Film Festival and was hailed as a New York Times Critic's Pick.
