These plants are not as we are used to seeing them, "alive" in
full bloom and colour, yet there exists a life energy in the
grey darkness of their death and decay.
I see life in their death. I see life in the characters that
emerge from them. I also see life in their transformations after
When I photograph a plant and return to it later, most often it
is not the same. Some-times it has changed or transformed into
something very different. Sometimes familiar characters have
changed their positions or their expressions, and I watch and
listen as new stories emerge. There is continual change in
death, as in life.
