12" x 15" x 3" shadow box with original photographs
This piece is a 3 dimensional collage of photos that I have taken and collected over the years. The succulent photos are individually mounted .5-2 inches from the paper surface, creating a varied and glowing composition.
The "specimen" composition is something I have felt drawn to this year. When each plant has space to breathe, it creates a precious quality contained within the glass box. While these plants often get overlooked in their natural habitat, this series aims to honor their exceptional uniqueness and beauty.
