I try to capture and convey more than just botanical minutiae; I also appreciate the graphic form and structure. Gesture and a sense of motion are also qualities that I very often find, which can give the subject some personality, attitude, and most of all character. They are more akin to portraiture than still life.
Aging gracefully is a recurring theme in many of these images as well. The perfect flower, in all its perky glamour and exhibitionism, is stunning. However, a flower or some other bit of flora past its prime, is yet another state of grace. The elegance of decay is what intrigues me the most.
These images are captured at a very high resolution that provides not only incredible detail but astonishing color and tonal depth. It also allows for very large prints. The lighting is very soft and is most elegant in its simplicity and focus. That which is closest to us is both brighter and sharper. This also imparts a very real sense of dimension. And a sense of life. I have shown my work in many exhibitions in and around Los Angeles, as well as Colorado, since 2008. My work was on the cover of Color Magazine and have had my work shown at Photo LA for several years as well as PhotoIndependent. I also did the Artist’s Project NYC in 2011.
