I am so pleased to announce the launch of my entire Autumn Obscura photography series.
Representing years of work, I began the series in 2012, creating all of the photographs in the fields and forests at my home in Michigan, adding new pieces each year. The fall color season only lasts a week or two in Michigan, so I gather all of my photographs during that small window of time each autumn, creating various effects using in-camera techniques.
The series currently consists of thirty photographs, and while several pieces have been included in galleries in California and Maryland, Autumn Obscura has never before been released in its entirety.
My photographs explore color, composition, and focal dimensions, addressing mood and emotion with nebulous images rather than depicting a specific subject matter or form. By stretching and challenging the usual functions of photography and image-making, straying from norms in focus and exposure, I respond to nature’s enchanting but often overlooked moments of inspiration -- a lone leaf, a bold strike of a tree branch, the last burst of color in the leaves before they fade into browns and grays.
