I’ve always wondered how my BS in Biology and MFA in photography would intersect. The lumen printing process brings these disciplines together perfectly. Lumen prints of plants reminded me of a botanists’ herbarium as well as the early photograms of Talbot and Atkins. This project has rekindled my passion for plant identification. Identifying plants is a kind of training for “seeing”. A botanist has to learn very subtle differences for correct plant identification. I suppose that is something from my early training that has influenced my artist eye. This project has also led me to create a more intimate connection to the land where I spend my summers.
