Penny Park

Penny Park is a photographer who explores the tension between nature and manufactured structures by capturing neglected environments. By working with film, she reflects on the Earth and the medium’s natural components concerning the 21st century’s global climate crisis. She highlights how humans interact with their surroundings, exhibiting how humans see disregarded nature as an impediment to the environment. Park believes poet John Keats described it admirably as “The poetry of the earth is never dead” and that the world’s beauty never ceases – the Earth is art and she exhibits this through her ongoing photographic work.
