Forest of Illumination
(color morphing photographic prints)
When it comes to spirituality, nature is my place of worship. While biking through the woods, standing at the top of a mountain or just looking up at the stars at night – nature has this strange ability to mystify… Forest Of Illumination was designed to give the viewer a moment of perceptual awe, symbolizing this transcendent experience.
The series contains eight large-scale photographs printed on cloth, each shot on 4×5 black and white film to achieve maximum detail. The negatives were then scanned, manipulated, and given bright hues of color. When hung in a darkened space, the ink reacts to the color changing light sources, creating a strange hypnotic moment of perception.
