The photographs in this book are simple, Zen-like meditations on the mystery of nature's primal patterns, expressed in four movements (each introduced by a short essay): Chaos, Order, Complexity, and Entropy.

Chaos is disorganized and formless; Order is imposed structure; Complexity is self-organized and emergent; Entropy is decay and death, but which presages rebirth.

These interpenetrating patterns drift ineffably on the currents of even deeper meta-patterns that provide a glimpse of a fundamental visual grammar of aesthetics and reality.

This book can also serve as a palimpsest of the author’s – and reader’s – process of self discovery.

As nature is quietly revealed, through four “movements” of snapshots of its timeless rhythms, the reader discovers visual echoes of herself experiencing nature as sudden stillness.
