These photographs are centered on 
			my fascination with the abstract qualities inherent in the flower form.

This Gallery explores the impact that can be
achieved by setting up portrait shots of flowers. By
carefully controlling the photographic atmosphere
one can go beyond the pretty picture and create a
work of art. It's true that I've stretched the
definition of the word " flower," but the fallen
leaves seemed to belong in this gallery.
