Entry Description

This is multiple image of the Wild Carrot. It consists of 50 single images. I photographed the images both outside and inside at night. I then combined each image to create a feeling of movement that one would see in an open field. This final image took me 3 months to complete. My photographic process involves first taking the plant apart and then photographing and scanning each piece. Then, I reassemble the many images together to produce a body of work which I feel is strongly intense yet fragile.

About Photographer

Graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Toronto Canada. As an artist, I am fascinated by both the continual change of negative and positive space through movement and the process of taking a living organism, fragmenting it, manipulating it, and then re-inventing it into an entirely new entity which resembles the original, but is in fact, entirely contemporary. An image which sways between reality and surrealism. I am ceaselessly driven to analyse the botanical and human form and in turn, to produce images that excite, intrigue, shock and generate new thoughts, to conjure up new sensations. I specialize in the use of multiple photographic imagery.
