Melissa Catanese's "Jungle"


Ms. Catanese seems like a woman after my own heart, with a love for the visual messiness and confusion of forests and woodlands.


I would love to see these as physical prints. She has other interesting work on her site as well


They also remind me a little of Thomas Struth's Paradise pictures

It seems that Melissa Catanese lives in Pittsburgh, PA. - a place that would be a photographer's dream if their thing is nature's tangles. The number of ravines, gullies and hillsides with massive overgrown tangles within the city limits is simply staggering.

here's an example - http://landscapist.squarespace.com/journal/2007/4/19/real-urban-ku-55-beauty-and-truth.html

Cool Mark.

Actually Edmonton's pretty much like that - it has the largest area of urban greenspace/parkland of any N American city - - about 7,500 hectares, and it's mainly the deep river valley and the various gullies and ravines that run down to it.

I'm just getting started on it.... :-)

maybe her time has come :)
