Digital Captures in Nature
"What I set out to capture, with a tool of digital means, is in direct impulse and sensory response to experiences through light and shadow over contrasted forms. Featuring here are series of Land Art and Pattern Form re-visions, contemplated in Nature.
Creating imagery in response to this new environment, a place I came to be in, was a very natural process of decoding the strange unfamiliar beauty around me, to find my sense of being and language in visual story making going forward ."

Time Responses : Poppies
A seasonal developmental series of images from the garden's poppy patch. Throughout the years I have noticed changes to the cyclical growth patterns of the poppies and the unusual budding forms in the anticipation before they give out a glorious display. After each season I collect, store and spread seeds before the first signs of winter - nurturing a habitat for biodiversity. Celebrating these jewell-like botanical wonders in the month of June, a pinnacle time of year, in a project titled TIME RESPONSES. As this title suggests, being fully present and engaged in capturing throughout the natural turning cycle of growth and fading, is coupled with an element of reciprocity. Giving back to nature what we take from it.
