Body in Nature

Photos taken by contributor Rachel Bussières, a 26-year-old Quebec
 City, Canada native, currently based out of the North Coast of California. She has been connected to mental illness since her childhood, when she had family members close to her struggling with different mental health issues, including severe depression. Rachel, who has a fine arts diploma and an 
anthropology degree, dedicates herself to 
the study of territories, inhabited or otherwise. 
After receiving a grant in 2009, she traveled and worked in India 
where she developed her artistic approach
 from humanist photography and visual
 anthropology. In 2011, she started to experiment with the fine art of paper making with natural fibers. The paper that she produces now serves as a support medium for her photographs as she continues to expose and publish her work around the world.

About these photos: “These photos are a study about the intimate relationship of the human body with nature. They are part of a whole series on beauty that has been produced in Quebec during winter and in California during summer. They were shot on film and printed on my hand paper.
