All the World’s a Stage
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, the bark of trees and mushrooms in their various stages of growth and natural decline. I have been collecting and photographing natural forms for quite some time and I am always looking for that special shape 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. I photograph indoors, using natural light and a reflective surface. 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.
All the World’s a Stage – I discovered a group of mushrooms under landscape plantings. At first it was their color that attracted my eye, they were milky white, with very thick stems, and strange shapes. I carefully picked these mushrooms and brought them home. I photographed them in their fresh state of growth along with miniature spidery succulent plants. When photographing this particular mushroom it took on a life unlike its original growth in a strange 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.
