This work is a study of flowers. The imagery examines the subjects through a tactile and slow image-making process. Using bleached polaroid negatives and often taken at night, the exposure times can last up to five minutes.
Slow and meditative, the process is a lot like the growth of the plant matter. An element of play, created through abstraction and double exposures, can be seen in the images, moving the subjects into an alternate reality.
