ELEMENTAL: EARTH, FIRE, WATER, AIR, STEEL

The ancients conceptualised our world as built on elemental primitives - Earth, Fire, Water and Air. This series adapts these primitives for our present age, and adds to them Steel, an artificial Element forged from Earth using Fire, Water and Air, and a metaphor for humankind's mastery over, and subjugation of, the ancient Elements. The images in this series strive to distill the essence of these five Elements into something that is both visually arresting and subtly tangible, by evoking a specific primary Element with undertones of multiple secondary Elements.
