Perennial is a botanical study completed during Covid 19 lockdown (April – June 2020). Unable to travel I began to notice the natural spaces closer to home – spaces I’d ordinarily pass without a second glance. I created negatives from specimens I collected during my morning walks. Unable to access my usual darkroom I utilised my negative scanner to examine the individual specimens photographically, resulting in a resolved body of work containing over 600 images. The series harnesses light to reveal the specimen’s hidden truth, as incredible geometric patterns and shapes emerge from the darkness. As nature emerges from the shadows, the series provides the audience with a contemplative space to question their relationship with nature and the natural world that has been overlooked.
