Artist's description:

I photograph leaves a lot; it’s something of an obsession. I prefer to capture them when they have fallen to the ground, not only can you then isolate them from their brothers and sisters but I often feel it’s then that their essence comes to the fore. The changing colour, the texture and veins pronounced.

The contortions remind me of the agony of death (sorry bit morbid I know but it comes to us all) it represents the life cycle and how everything ultimately comes to an end.

As the Buddhists believe, until one accepts that we all die, one can’t begin to enjoy life and I’m beginning to agree.

As a rule I print my pictures on A3 Matte Archival Art Paper but occasionally I use a semi gloss paper, this is because, I believe that the image will benefit. I reserve the right to make that decision on your behalf, unless of course you request otherwise.

If you have a preference of paper type, then if you contact me direct, this can be discussed.

The image size will be approximately 10x8, or what I consider sits aesthetically correct within an A3 paper format.

Should you be interested in purchasing one of my pictures, it’s worth noting, that print colour may vary slightly depending on what system you are viewing the image.
