With our third month of Void’s “Photo of the Month,” we feature local UNF student Robert Curtis, who sent us two brilliant photos. The first of these photos, titled, “Encompassing Power #32” might just be my favorite submission thus far. While beautiful in a strange way, Curtis’ photo will provoke some deep thoughts about the human impact on our environment. Discover how he created his works below. Submit your own for next month’s section!
