Foliage I wanted to make photographs that make our nearby woods look as alive and vibrant I as see them. I wanted to make photographs new and pleasing to the eye, full of robust colors and patterns. I wanted to make photographs which reflect the passage of time over which they were taken — long bright moments of light and color — photographs of the organic chaos of these woods. I went out into the woods looking for color, motion and light. To abstract these photos, to give them their brush, pen and colored wash qualities, I blended many exposures into a single final photographic image.
