(Lumenprints - Wet cyanotypes - Cyanolumems – Polaroids)
This series is a collection of images related to found leaves and flowers brought by mother nature in my daily walks. The decay of these leaves and flowers are inevitable.
While photography has a fixation with permanence, which doesn’t exist to the same degree within other art forms, these images speak about ephemeral photography processes which are notoriously difficult to fix. The images speak of vulnerability and mutability because they gradually continue chemically changing as time passes by.
Is it necessary to stabilize our images to perceive reality differently?
These repeated interpretations contain a sense of intimacy with mother nature. Each leaf and flower have a unique form, they are not a documentary aspect of nature, they are a dialogue between chemistry and light.
