Figure / Foliage
The familiar form of the human figure is presented with mystery and ambiguity, which is reinforced when contrasted with the addition of a fantastic variety of sharp-focus plant forms. The conversation between those pairings of particular yet universal manifestations of nature are presented with formal compositional rigor — devoid of extraneous elements. Nevertheless, these become poetic juxtapositions which invite comparison, meditation, and appreciation.
All the pictures show what was presented to the camera. There is no manipulation of the image after the initial, single exposure and no computer-generated or other special effects.
