Even after the one night only opening show, the Night Blooming Cereus is still a beautiful flower. This lumen print comes from the first bloom of the plant I've had for two years. It was printed in sunlight the following morning as a solar photogram on fiber based photographic paper. In the spirit of the Night Blooming Cereus plant itself, the original print was left unfixed making it sensitive to light. This is a print of the original.

At the root of all my work is my worldview. From the tiniest twig to the largest tree, the natural world is a source of inspiration for me, as well as the environment we create for ourselves. As the world becomes more modernized, I often find myself in nature connecting and recognizing humankind’s place in the world. With that thought in mind, I use the 19th century technique of lumen printing to create a true impression of our world. In my lens based photography and songwriting, I explore the world, reflecting on what is, what can be and the relationship between ourselves and nature. I love sharing with others whether through new works, exhibitions, performances/presentations, teaching, and random stories. I believe that when we form a connection, whether it lasts for a moment or a lifetime, the benefits are infinite.
