A Beautiful Nature

A series about finding beauty in aging that compares parts of the body to land forms.

Shircliff states, "I look for the aesthetic quality of my aging skin, inverting the notion that beauty resides only in youth. Time marks the body in much the same way that time marks the landscape, therefore, I embrace the beautiful nature of time and aging."
