The photo collage series ‘Simulations’ by californian artist Alexandra Bellissimo combines human beings with nature in order to create a certain emotion or feeling. She constructs her unique and surreal imagery through use of traditional collaging techniques along with physically merging prints together.

Her body of work is not simply taking pictures but evolves around the theory of making pictures. In her collages the two opposing subjects merge into a cohesive visual illustration where they both coexist, raising new perspectives on the relationship between people and nature.
