Holocene is a series created by photographing deposits of manganese oxide called Dendrites. Dendrites form patterns on rocks which look very similar to plant fossils. These formations made me think of the beauty that nature leaves as its “footprint,” and unlike humankind, one that will slowly fade over the years. And even though we’re living in a period of geological time when many believe that we are bringing about the worlds sixth mass extinction I find comfort that mother earth will continue with or without us.
