The Secret Garden

“The Secret Garden”,  inspired by the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett with the same title; is a series of self portraits by Korede Shittu exhibiting the human spirit in nature and the physical and spiritual healing it creates. The photo series implements the contrasts of the digital and the physical world through manipulating the photographs using MidJourney,  an AI image generator. Through capturing each photo of authentic nature and Earth’s creation then attempting to recreate the ephemeral experience through a digital AI. The result is a shocking surreal image where reality and fabrication blends, questioning the definition of self portraits.
