Natures’ Blossoms Portraiture Photography. With our undeniable bond and complex relationship to that of our own visage and that of others, the exploration of portraiture continues. This time moving away from the individuality of self or our own personalities albeit psychologies. Instead we explore the identity of something greater than ourselves.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.William Shakespeare
As I work on these series of portraits, I am finding beautiful words of many poets before us that resonate with this same desire. Of painting a picture, of the vastness and greatness of Nature’s power and beauty.
Words, like nature, half reveal and half conceal the soul within.Alfred Lord Tennyson
Natures’ Blossoms the Wisdom of Spring
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.Elizabeth Appell
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.Rainer Maria Rilke
For this series in Natures’ BlossomsRilke’s quote resounds in this image. ‘Spring has returned.. Earth is like a a child that knows poems’. The earth an ancient child with poetic wisdom. Discomfiting, stark and beautiful.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.Robert Frost
Natures’ Blossoms in the woods
The words of Robert Frost take us into the deep dark woods. Like an enveloping blanket that can drown us in its depths. Yet the woods are beautiful the way the night is beautiful. Its shadows unforgiving as they are revealing.
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature’s inexorable imperative.H.G Wells
The poetry of the earth is never dead.John Keats
“The art in photography is not just taking a picture. It is not just technical. It is putting soul in the frame that you want to create as an image. So there can be a different story through your photograph. We are finding a new driving inspiration to give our fine art photography life. ”
