Life Form Portfolio

Paper by Hahnemühle
The Life Form Series
My fascination with sensual organic form knows no limits. The natural beauty that drew me to photography is most profoundly manifested by the very sensuality of natural form itself. It's beauty is deeply emotional, bound up in the basic instinct and desires of our humanness. Finding such form in the real world has been my career. This work concentrates that intrigue on the wonderful and strange form found in plant life. Closely examined, these seemingly familiar, fellow creatures of this planet, become profoundly compellingly, strange, almost alien and and irresistible to explore with care, deep focus, sensitively and without embellishment.
Genesis of this Work
The Life Form Series has grown from my lifelong fascination with organic form and design. Not only have I found solace in the natural world for all of my adult life, but my respect for all living things has profoundly effected how I’ve lived my life.
Cameras, Lenses and Printers by Canon.
The Life Form portfolio began in late 2014 after one of my printing students said he would very much be interested in having a boxed set of prints from the work. Thus the Life Form Portfolio One was born. It took quite some time to find the right cloth and design the logo. The boxes are custom made by Portfolio Box in Rhode Island.
Hahnemuhle has been very supportive supplying the Museum Etching paper which I designed with them. Canon has been the core corporate sponsor driving this project forward.
A 10 print limited-edition portfolio of 35 copies is available from the exhibition in a signed boxed and numbered set of 9.5x14 inch prints in a 16x20 portfolio case.
