Using light really like a brush while taking pictures. With the intention to capture that sparkle of life’s immanent eternal energy. And to share that sublime & deeply touching feeling of beauty. That has been my starting point.
Actually, I have to confess, this series is still in the making. You’ve got me there. But I adore these images and didn’t want to keep them back. I promise to fill the space.
In some way, having created this space on my website kind of puts pressure on me to keep on going.
There is even more motivation to proceed, as a toned cyanotype of this peony image has been awarded at IPA 2022 International Photography Awards with Official Selection + Honorable Mention in the category Analog.
And be prepared, I might call something like ‚A rose is a rose is a rose‚. Or ‚100 views of peony‚.
Inspired by Hokusai and his views of edo.
And Japan – is always and here specifically – a great starting point as I want to approach that fascination and myth of peony. And there are so many beautiful haikus about peonies!
Be inspired by my favorite peony poems!
my head bows…
About to bloom,
And exhale a rainbow,
When the peonies bloomed,
It seemed as though were
No flowers around them.
