One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.

– Minor White

As a photographer, I am interested in how light interacts with the subject, and how the camera changes an object when photographed.  In the series of flowers, I investigated these concepts in the photographed studies of flowers.  I am intrigued in what makes a still life, does it have to be in the studio or can the composition be created in the subject’s natural environment?  My motivation behind this project is to see how an already aesthetically pleasing subject (flowers) translates when photographed. Traditionally, still life artists have created these compositions to communicate metaphorical meanings, and the still life subject can allow the viewer to bring their own experience and symbolic meaning to the images.
