In photographs by Daniel Kukla, the world is reflected in strategically placed mirrors that take an interesting view of their surroundings. For his series The Edge Effect, the photographer set up shop at California’s Joshua Tree National Park.
While traveling through the dry lands of the park, the photographer noticed the areas where different ecosystems came into juxtaposition, a phenomenon called Edge Effect in ecological sciences. The photographer captured this effect in these images, using a large mirror and a painter’s easel. The mirror became the canvas for nature’s change, capturing a distinct colors and textures at the edge.
