I spent a lot of time in nature this past summer. I was in The Thousand Islands of Upstate NY, Hunterdon County and the Delaware River in Frenchtown, NJ, and Maine. Getting out of my studio and spending time in nature was really great for me.
During my adventures I collected leaves, branches, and rocks to bring back my studio and photographed them. They are nothing really special, just ordinary objects you can find anywhere in nature. However, I found beauty in their shapes and colors. I stylize them in my studio and photographed them in film with my Sinar 4x5 camera.
The original prints for this series are available at my website.
