Put simply, fractals are rough or fragmented and repeating geometric patterns that vary according to a set formula; a mixture of art and geometry. Approximate examples of fractal self-similarity echo through nature on infinitely different scales.
Each pair of photos here compare these patterns as they cascade through the natural world. The aerial photo on the left, taken from 5-7 miles aloft, is compared to a micro or land-based view on the right. Once considered, the geometry of fractals found in nature is ubiquitous.

On a recent shoot I found myself here; the shipping department. If you consumed it, it probably passed through here.
