September’s Sensitivities‘, about this series:

IMG_7072

September’s Sensitivities Series uses my original photography of my original findings and harvests in nature. I am drawn to the sensitive tones of September when the Autumn approaches quickly here and the landscape of my home changes dramatically. The death that follows what has just ripened feels very symbolic and mystical, to me. In contrast to the craft and folk art of dried flower arrangements I take a more spontaneous approach. Through scattering and accentuating textures and patterns, I hoped to invoke a kind of slow dance and companionship or romance of hues.
