Empty Presence - Joanne Scherf: Visual Explorer
Powered by SmugMug Log In


Nature provides a space of solitude, a zone of quiet respite where one can embrace the view that feeds the soul. This portfolio demonstrates the absent presence of humans in nature represented by a fleeting glimpse, hints, traces, artifacts or actual shadows of humans interacting with the environment.

The panoramic/wide angle perspective shows the vastness of open space, yet at the same time I strive to exhibit the intimate embrace of nature.
