Dead Nature may seem an odd title for these works of delicate beauty. It comes from the fact that in most languages what we call a "still life" is translated into "dead nature" For example, in France they call this "nature morte".

Like photography itself, a still life of previously animate objects like flowers represents a specific moment in time. Inevitably such objects will not last long in this state of pristine beauty and, if not dead, they are certainly dying. They are in a fragile state which bears contemplation and enjoyment.

This series is presented as 7x10" Palladium prints on Bergger Cot320 paper.
