Fine Art Photography
As a fine artist with a background in painting, printmaking, and sculpture, I now use photography as a source of ideas and a tool to create. My photographs are portraits/still lifes of nature’s forms, from flowers, dried leaves, twigs, to the bark of trees in their various stages of growth and natural decline. I have been collecting and photographing these natural forms for quite some time and I am always looking for that special form of nature that inspires me. The camera brings out qualities that one cannot see with the naked eye when these forms are on the ground. These photographs are taken indoors, using natural light and a reflective surface. When composing and taking these photographs the challenge is to create exciting and interesting compositions to entice the viewer to see these images in a new and different way. They created a new life of their own through the lens of my camera.
Sunflower – One always recognizes the Sunflower with its big daisylike flower faces and bright yellow petals. When photographing this flower I took many shots of it from all angles. What I like about this particular image is that the sunflower is shown from behind with the light shining on its bright yellow petals. One now sees the structure of its stem and green outer pointed petals giving the flower another dimension allowing the viewer to see its beauty in a new and different way.
For each group of new photographs I like to create a series from four, six or eight different compositions so that I have one, two or a group of photographs that work well together. All images are limited editions, signed and numbered, printed on archival smooth cotton paper.
