With a series of portraits, called Divine Nature, photographer Holly Wilmeth seeks to capture the encounter between women and nature, symbolized into animal form. “There’s a long history in shamanic traditions and ancient cultures where humans have imbued themselves with the special qualities that animals have and their relationship to the world. Eating a part of the animal, or wearing a part of the animal, or using the animal as a totem deeply permeates us with their special powers. We want to come back to that state of grace where we are aligned with nature as animals are in the right relationship with their environment”. Peculiar picture of the week.
