I’m passionate about capturing the essence of my subjects, be it landscapes, people or more recently orchids.
From the moment I macro-photographed orchids in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, I was captivated by their unique beauty and fascinating personalities. To my eye, orchids close up appear to have human, animal and even angelic characteristics. Their petals remind me of angel wings. I call them Orchid Angels.
With as many variations as your imagination can fathom, orchids go to extreme lengths to attract pollinators to ensure their reproduction. The bottom petal, which form the lip, is the entrance to the reproductive organs. Here is my focus, where orchids reveal their spirit, the animating force within all living things.
My intention is that I engage you, the viewer, in the excitement of discovery that I experience so that we can marvel together at the beauty and mystery around us.
