For one season, I methodically scanned every bloom in my dahlia garden. As I was recording the blooms daily, making sure not to miss even one, I was struggling with infertility. I had a realization of mortality at this time, of life choices, and of the thought of a different narrative for my life.
The process of selecting each flower, then layering and composing became a cathartic exercise for my mind to focus on the present. Beautiful flowers floating in a dark void of blackness, extreme detail and light contrasted with the unknown. This series is about the duality of nature, loss and renewal.
