Human Nature

The photographs by Barbara Bosworth are stunning. While looking at these photos I get a sense of contemplation, passage of time and a connection to the natural world. They capture long, silent pauses as well as fleeting moments in life. Her work is truly inspiring and deserves a second, third and even fourth look. Take your time to really soak them in here.
