A collection of flower photography which I have taken over the years, using various equipment and techniques, both traditional and digital. Those images with a frame were originally shot with a 5x4 MPP field camera on Polaroid Type 55 material. This now discontinued product produced a negative as well as a print. When printed, the negative rebate can be included to enhance the image and give a natural frame effect.
I have never just sought to prettify flowers. Like most people, I'm strongly drawn to the shapes they have but more than that, they remain powerful symbols. Flowers are the actual reproductive systems of plants and so the symbology revolves around themes of erotica, birth, unity, growth, connection. You will see those themes in my photography.
