MacPherson explains the series as: the words are taken from magazine articles and advertisements that use references to nature to sell products, and the photographs are concerned with objects that promise human immortality - rather as advertising does. The words and pictures function as parallel texts but viewers are free to bring their own associations to the words/picture mix.
