Crescent City Illumenations is an ongoing series of Lumen Prints, an early photographic process using organic objects as subjects on black and white photographic paper, then exposing and developing them in the sun. I've spent the last 10 years taking daily walks in New Orleans' Garden District, more so for mental clarity than for exercise… As I began experimenting with the lumen print process, my subject matter became the fallen flowers and leaves that I gathered as they crossed my path during these walks. The result is a series of images that reflects my belief that this is truly a beautiful world, and our thoughts and actions help shape the world and environment in which we live.
The following images are a selection from this series.
