Flora  (2003 - 2012)

I am drawn to images that carry a certain meditative quality. Part of this is achieved by using a sparse language of geometrical shapes, lines, and rhythms. Furthermore, I often use a narrow tonal range, so that the images are either overall dark or overall light. Sometimes I use alternative processes, as when I created “Genesis” by cross-printing a color slide on black-and-white paper, which transformed the white and red dahlia into a black and white explosion of energy.

About the series

I am drawn to images that carry a certain meditative quality. Part of this is achieved by using a sparse language of geometrical shapes, lines, and rhythms. Furthermore, I often use a narrow tonal range, so that the images are either overall dark or overall light. Sometimes I use alternative processes, as when I created “Genesis” by cross-printing a color slide on black-and-white paper, which transformed the white and red dahlia into a black and white explosion of energy.

By abstracting away from the literal subject matter, I hope to leave behind the question “What is it?”, and let our associations to come to the forefront. My goal is for the photographs to have a feeling of meditative simplicity, so they are images not from our everyday, mundane world of hustle and bustle, but instead from the more symbolic and archetypal world of our imagination.

All photographs are archival pigment prints, on the highly-textured Hahnemuehle William Turner paper. Prints are available at 12” x 12”, 20” x 20”, 40” x 40”, and 58” x 58”.
