Tyler with his partner Ellen


Tyler W. Green (b. 1985) is an American photographer whose work concerns the relationship between humans and the natural world. His photographs depict the tension between human activity and its impact on the environment. This tension is woven throughout his work, challenging the perspective that humans are separate from nature. Working within urban environments and preserved wilderness areas his photographs examine the precarious balance of ecosystems amongst society's reliance on natural resources. Through direct intervention within the landscape, using artificial light and other materials, his photographs represent human activity and question the inherent value of wild places. Together, his works challenge the dominance of humans over nature and foster a perspective that we are connected to the health of our environment.
