Images from "Luminous Bloom"
"Luminous Bloom" is a trilogy of handmade photo books that includes POPPY, CALLA, and ANGEL TRUMPET. All three books are quiet, classic works of art; each is signed, dated and numbered in a limited edition of twenty. Inspiration for the project came initially as a question: What sort of image would emerge by photographing a single blossom floating in darkness, moved in intervals, and illumined by more than one source of light? The process of multiple exposure produced variations and abstractions of the same flower.
