The Naturalist

Photo Description:
A vintage suitcase, filled with the personal belongings of a naturalist, reveals the identity of an individual dedicated to exploring and examining her surroundings. Gail Roberts collaged and sculpted each object inside the suitcase from found natural materials. Some of the items are practical- binoculars and sunglasses to see the world clearly and a journal and camera to record every observation. But other items are frivolous and playful, like the leaf-covered pumps decorated with acorn brooches, and the complete vanity set made from twigs and sticks.
