Photographer Captures The Life And Death Of A Lonely Robot

/>Brooklyn-based photographer Thomas Jackson has captured a lone robot’s attempt at co-existing with the natural world.

/>

/>Titled ‘The Robot’, the collection portrays the robot doing the ordinary and mundane things that well, us humans do.

/>

/>Bordering on dark humor, the series traces the robot’s failure to survive, culminating in its eventual and tragic death.

/>

/>According to Jackson, his work seeks to explore the “uneasy, opposing emotions Mother Nature provokes in us: fear and fascination, reverence and contempt, attaction, revulsion, greed, guilt”.

/>

/>He explained that he chose to build the series around a robot as it “seemed an apt representation of our otherness within the natural word”.

/>

/>His photos are also available as a limited edition book made with sheet metal and salvaged wood (see video below).
