Arizona diptych | Head On Photo Festival

Arizona diptych

Photographer's Name: 
Itamar Freed

This photograph is of a diorama: a model of the Arizona permanently installed in New York. The diorama's original intent was to inspire environmentalism and visually preserve a unique landscape. 
I reinterpreted the scene; three-dimensional taxidermied birds and flora, and a two-dimensional painted mural in the background to produce a picture-perfect landscape, alerting the viewer to the disappearance of natural landscape and the dissolving of two seemingly separate categories - nature and culture
