"I primarily shoot botanicals, focusing on the beautiful aspects of plants and flowers. For this portfolio, I didn't choose the most attractive specimens but the most interesting ones. Where I would have avoided the holes in leaves, the spent flowers or the crooked stem, this time, I embraced these "faults" to highlight the structural elements I typically take for granted. Trying to break out of a photographic rut, I used Eric Rozen’s call for portfolios, using Hipstamatic’s Madalena lens, in an attempt to get serious and go deeper into what I am seeing. Using a dark background to isolate the plant and the clarity that the Madalena lens and Bream film allow, it brought focus to the diverse structures of a summer’s garden."
