There’s something incredibly enticing about this picture. I think it’s the mesh between humanity and nature as well as the coloration. The lighting is superb and the pose and expression are subdued but passionate. I love how the lighting really draws us to her face and her expression…

I was drawn to this piece because the subjects of disintegration and transformation are ones that I find extremely interesting; they are captured superbly here in the mise-en-scène.

In the image we have the woman surrounded by the forest, and there is a fascinating symbiosis occurring between the two. As this is a conceptual piece, the reason for this is left to the observer's imagination. For me, the military garb suggests a possible return to a state of camouflage. The lighting is also done magnificently well, with the source being directly behind the subject so she is illuminated but our attention is not drawn away from her to the source itself.

I find the positioning of the trees and other foliage fascinating: the subject is being surrounded by nature, but it does not feel claustrophobic because it is almost as if nature is giving the subject her own space to perform her disintegration or transformation. The appearance of the symbiosis, as mentioned above, is achieved by giving the fragmentation that is occurring from the back of the woman's head a forestial appearance.

Finally, the pose is simply perfect: the woman's purposeful posture shows us that she is emotionally committed to the process that is occurring. However, although she is adorned with combat equipment, she is not standing at attention; she is in, not under, command.

In my opinion this is artistically, conceptually and technically a staggeringly important piece.
