Everything about a flower is meant to attract—its size, shape, line, color, texture, geometry, even its odor. Flowers are the quintessential demonstration of how beauty ties to function and propagation in the natural world.

As a contemplative photographer, my long-standing attraction to flowers as subject matter has mostly to do with their color, texture, and geometry, features that in combination evoke the nature and sensibility of all living things, particularly process and change.

I find that these sensibilities are best conveyed and amplified for my purposes when the camera is up-close and when the light either comes from behind to reveal translucence, or from the side to emphasize texture, sometimes both if I’m working with lights in the studio.
