The antique forms of tintype, ambrotype, and prints from glass-plate negatives allow for a heightened awareness of the intense beauty and mystery of the mundane. These plant parts are photographed in extreme macro–with an eight-foot long camera and a scavenged military aerial survey lens–in a way that intentionally confuses perception. The resulting ambiguous scale, in conjunction with a composition reminiscent of portraiture, lends a corporeality to these plant specimens. Lines between plant and human are blurred as these organic forms mimic the familiar: silhouettes, hands, gestures, viscera, genitalia.
