Self-exploration has been a recurrent theme in my work. In 2021 I expanded this view with thoughts on bridging the gap between our modern humanity and the natural world. As part of my Self Illumenations series, I began creating this body of work that honors the self and shows the power of ourselves as natural beings. Our hidden nature is brought out into the light to reveal our human nature. This image was photographed in Couterie Forest, City Park as the sun was setting in the Fall of 2021.

At the root of all my work is my worldview. From the tiniest twig to the largest tree, the natural world is a source of inspiration for me, as well as the environment we create for ourselves. As the world becomes more modernized, I often find myself in nature connecting and recognizing humankind’s place in the world. With that thought in mind, I use the 19th century technique of lumen printing to create a true impression of our world. In my lens based photography and songwriting, I explore the world, reflecting on what is, what can be and the relationship between ourselves and nature. I love sharing with others whether through new works, exhibitions, performances/presentations, teaching, and random stories. I believe that when we form a connection, whether it lasts for a moment or a lifetime, the benefits are infinite.
Natasha Sanchez is a New Orleans artist living and working in the Lower Garden District neighborhood.
