Samye Asher is a fine art photographer whose work seeks to shine a light on the importance of our connection to nature, often combining science and metaphor to express his vision.
“Asher uses photography as a tool to evoke the stillness that can be felt through experiencing the natural world and its elements. Assisted by studio lighting that is constructed within his landscapes, Asher creates uncanny scenes that are meeting points between nature and science, the internal and the external, and reality and fantasy. His otherworldly photographic compositions offer viewers a space to reflect on their connection with nature, in a world increasingly consumed by technology and popular culture. “ - Singulart
