Wandering through this ancient forest I fell in love.

The experience was all encompassing, sight, sound and smell combining for an exhilarating feast of the senses, food for the soul.

The foliage was omnipresent and I focused on the predominant forms and features surrounding me.

During my travels I collected botanical specimens that I then used to create a series of cyanotypes.

The samples were later exposed in the sun and washed in river water collected from the site. 

A splash of alchemy, art and science merging as one.
