Saucer Magnolia Flower

Artist’s Statement

During winter and spring, I made images of plants whose foliage ranged from decrepit to brand new, and of some early blossoms as well, focusing on structure. My interest was in shape, edge, texture, pattern, and contrast. With close attention, there is much to be enjoyed about the fundamental physicality of plants during the time of year when we may scarcely think about them.




I am a landscape photographer living in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I like to photograph the commonplace, working mostly in black-and-white, and I intend the images to be simple and straightforward. My work has been shown in many juried and curated exhibitions and is represented in private and museum collections in the South.
