Brooke Holm

Brooke Holm is an Australian-American photographer and explorer based in Brooklyn, NY.

In her work, Holm studies the elemental features of the Earth through detailed environmental portraits. She focuses on the physical body of the Earth, often treated by humankind as we treat any body, with opposing practices of reverence and exploitation.

Holm often works from small aircraft, photographing the veins and arteries of the planet and revealing the organic and inorganic pockmarks of time on the surface. She is interested in the relationship between this terrestrial life form and our own lives, which further extends into the relationship between this world and other worlds.

By disrupting the scale and perspective at which we have become accustomed to consuming our planet, Holm examines the false dichotomy between humans and nature and seeks a more accurate representation of co-existence. When altering our conventional viewpoint, the greater picture is a network of interconnected bodies. Our bodies are merely extensions of the body of the Earth.
