Flowers in Transition is a fine art book over two years in the making. What started out as a personal project has blossomed into something far more than I could have dreamed of. During the making of the book I found myself dropping everything to photograph a flower. When I see a bloom in an interesting state I know that ten minutes later it may look completely different. Recognizing that small window of opportunity and having the discipline to act on it has resulted in the images that make up The Flowers in Transition collection.
I am aware of the short life that flowers have, and have been interested in photographing them as they transition through the stages of bud to full bloom and death. As flowers transition through different stages colors change drastically and the textures become more intense.
In the beginning of this project I was more interested in finding unique flowers to photograph, but began experimenting with more common flowers and realized that every flower was an incredibly interesting subject to photograph. Some of my favorite images are of flowers I found along the roadside blooming wild, or in my studio garden.
This project born out of passion for what was surely the first art form on Earth, has turned into a life changing, ongoing fascination with one of the most beloved objects in nature, The Flower.
