Parker Fitzgerald is a traveling photographer currently living in Portland, Oregon. He enjoys Japan, Lord of the Rings, Polaroid, Kodak film, and Legend of Zelda.
Overgrowth is his new and ongoing artistic collaboration with floral designer Riley Messina (Erba Floral Studio). Inspired by a pursuit of beauty, Riley combines classically thoughtful botanical designs with Parker’s carefully considered film images in an expression of the multifaceted relationship between humankind and nature. The two artists contrast anonymous portraiture with sweeping landscapes in an attempt to capture both the malleable and untamed aspects of the natural world.
