Piece description from the artist
Rite of Spring
Through this series I hope to evoke a feeling of nostalgia and rekindle the respect that planet Earth deserves. The photographs were taken with an infrared filter, which is light unseen through the human eye. Infrared literally means “below red” because it is at a frequency which is lower than red (the longest wavelength of visible light). The everyday scene is now transformed into something majestic and memorable. This series reveals beauty within the unknown by exploring the beauty in what has already been created. Moreover, it is about reestablishing a relationship with and within nature on a first-hand experience that I encourage you to explore for yourself.
Art, like all of life, is not an instant process but a well-developed craft over time. Visual art captured my attention as a teenager. I wandered into my first photography course and realized the ability to document the world is a significant passion.
