dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores the question, “What is the phenomenological experience of photography with nature?” Upon observing patrons at a regional park who appeared to be experiencing nature through their cameras, I became curious as to the value of photography for nature connection. Over the course of six months, I practiced photography while in nature and through autoethnography recorded my experiences and observations of photography with nature. Selected photographs are in the blog http://naturethroughthelens.webs.com. Through this regular practice of photography with nature, including contemplative photography techniques, I was able to strengthen my own connection with nature. Themes that emerged through qualitative analysis of my photographs and observations included interconnection, dualism, and the sense of “self” in photography. This regular practice of photography with nature can be adapted to engage educators, photographers, or even students in creating their own regular photographic art practice while in nature and potentially increasing their sense of connection to nature.
