Autumnal Glimpses explores human’s relationship with the natural world, impermanence and the beauty of nature’s transitory states.
I wanted the subject to influence the work by incorporating surrounding plant matter in stages of the process such as scanning the negatives and toning the prints.
One morning I found trees wrapped with string sculpted by the wind and rain. Later I attempted to mimic these abstract lines in the images using thread.
The printed fragments, each uniquely toned, are then reassembled and sewn together. The image chronicles traces of the process – scratches, fingerprints and repairs remain a part of the image
