Piece description from the artist
"I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put in order." – John Burroughs
This thought guides me when photographing my minimalist series "Lightscapes". I compare the process while creating a piece to meditation. It requires calm, concentration and mindfulness on the part of the photographer. Reduced to its essence, memories and emotions, "Lightscape #4" reflects my deep desire to be one with nature, to feel its energy and vibrant life. It is inspired by Marc Rothko's abstract paintings.
