NATURE LOVERS consists of a series of videos that observe the behaviour of visitors to places with overwhelming nature. Taking photographs is a common occurrence at these places, especially selfies. This raises the question: to what extent does narcissism and the act of capturing and representing nature limit our experience of the natural world? By filming from fixed points and digitally adjusting the passing of time in the images, David Stephenson enhances the contrast between the immense periods of the geological eras in which that nature has emerged and the transience of man.
